The video shows the duo claiming: “by attacking Khalid we wanted to give a gift to the people on the occasion of Independence Day.”  The duo has identified themselves as Sarvesh Shahpur and Naveen Dalal. The duo has urged the police not to “harass” others for the attack, the report said.

“If their claim found to be corroborative, they will be arrested,” a Special Cell police officer was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.

The cops said they will take the help of the Haryana and Punjab police to trace the duo. The cops believe the video was recorded somewhere in Haryana or Punjab, it was reported.
