“What was the motive behind taping the incident of removing tint from the SUV of VC,” the spokesman questioned, however, he added “The party has full faith in the Rule of Law which is equal for everyone, but the circumstances in which the SUV of VC was stopped and taping of the incident is something which needs to be probed.”
