EvidenceSubstantial proof against Chatterjee: Kolkata Police

The high speed of the car was proof that it was a deliberate act by Vikram, said Kolkata Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Vishal Garg.

Garg also said that the unusual speed of the car just before the crash proved that the car was not in driver's control.

Any laboratory evidence to prove Chatterjee's inebriated condition could not be confirmed.
