New Delhi, Sep 27 (UNI) Police today ruled out any ''firing'' on Congress MP Krishna Tirath in the alleged attack on her late last evening, saying forensic tests confirmed that there was no evidence of gunshot damage on the car.

Joint Commissioner (New Delhi range) Ajay Kashyap told UNI that the CFSL team of the CBI investigated the matter and ruled out damage caused to the car by a gunshot.

''No evidence of gunshot has been found in the tests conducted by the CBI CFSL team, which conducted the checks today.'' Besides, the PSO sitting on the rear seat of the MP's car also reported that he did not hear any gunshot, he said while adding that at the most, it was hit by a stone or a pebble.

Even ballistic experts did not find any signs of bullet marks on the car, in which the MP was travelling with her husband last evening, when the alleged 'attack' took place, Mr Kashyap added.
