On the basis of the complaint, six persons have been named in the case.
Arwal SP Vimal Kumar had yesterday vehemently denied the reports that Chandravanshi's hands were chopped off by some people after he had expressed inability to repay the money that he had taken as loan from them sometime back and said that the reports were found to be 'concocted' during preliminary investigation.
Kumar further said that the police had received information that Chandravanshi had "lost his hands near Danapur in Patna in an accident on the railway track."
