The incident had caused quite a stir since the accused, identifying himself as a cop, had threatened to kill Hashmi and claimed that under a “ghero aur maaro (surround and kill)” policy, the cops were now entitled to “eliminate” anyone who did not possess a valid address and identity proof – in particular an Aadhaar number.
