Thiruvananthapuram: A video released by Wafa Firoz on Wednesday is doing rounds on social media. The latter has refuted suspended IAS officer Sriram Venkitaraman’s statement that she drove the vehicle when it rammed into a motorcycle and claimed the life of a journalist KM Basheer in Thiruvananthapuram.
Sriram, in his explanation letter to Chief Secretary Tom Jose the other day, had claimed that he was not drunk at the time of the accident.
“There were six or seven eyewitnesses of the incident and also there is the forensic report. Where are they?” she asked.
“I am an ordinary woman. I don’t have power. I had disclosed all the details to the police as such three days after the accident. I don’t know what will happen to me tomorrow. I stand by what I said,” Wafa said.
She also said that Sriram can manipulate anything using his power.
Wafa, who was with Sriram during the time of the accident, also expressed concerns about her safety. “Sriram has power and he can do anything. I am worried about my fate,” she said in a video released on Thursday.
