According to the GD, the lawmaker went to Gopal Biswas’ home in Kolkata at around 7:00pm on May 12. At 1:41pm the following day, he left Gopal’s home to visit a doctor. He then said he would return in the evening.
In the evening, Azim, in a WhatsApp message, told Gopal that he was going to Delhi and would call him after reaching there. The lawmaker also mentioned in the message that Gopal did not need to call him, reads the GD.
On May 15, Azim, in another WhatsApp message, informed that he had reached Delhi, and he was with VIPs and there was no need to call him. He also forwarded the same message to his personal assistant, Rouf.
