Khan also accused the state police of colluding with them under the direction of the Chief Minister.
“They came before my car. They hit my car from both sides. I got down. Will they allow anyone to come near the car of the Chief Minister? Police knew them but what can the police do when the CM is directing them? When I got down they all got into their jeeps and they ran away,” Governor Khan said.
