I am ready to cooperate with the UP Police and I want to request to the authorities and the honourable CM of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adiyanath ji, that I will take full responsibility for the case if they find me involved in the matter in any capability. I also request the media to not malign my name until anyone has solid proof of my involvement in the case. I have nothing to do with these claims and rumours (sic),” he said in the video.
