A member of the Adyar traffic investigations wing said, “This is not a case of drunken driving. We have ruled it out.” A video of the incident on social media shows one of Dhruv's friends arguing with the police, refusing to get into the police vehicle. The youth is seen trying to call someone and asks the person shooting the video to stop filming him, even as police request him to escort them. He then proceeds to run away from the camera.
