We have launched an enquiry to verify the claims. All these applications have been marked to Mata Ramabai Ambedkar Marg police station. An officer of the rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police has launched the enquiry.

Sources added, Police will also verify claims made by Prabhakar Sail. Police teams are verifying locations of mobile phone numbers as well as CCTV footage of various places mentioned. Once the report is ready, it will be submitted to higher authorities. They will decide whether or not to file an FIR.
