A crime branch official who was on the sport earlier today said that the CCTV footage quality is very poor.

“The CCTV footage quality is very poor, and it was dark, so the bike’s registration number was not clear. Both the rider and the pillion rider were wearing helmets. We are taking the help of technical experts to clear footage and get a few leads in the matter,” the official said.
