I render sincere apology to people who must have felt deeply hurt for my paranoia. Also feel too grateful to a huge crowd of friends and well wishers who deeply felt upset about my pain. Have no words to thank them.— Nusrat Javeed (@javeednusrat) December 8, 2018
In the series of tweets, the journalists went on to say: "Police also believe that boys came around me perhaps wanted to help me but the post accident trauma and paranoia made me suspect otherwise. I have no choice but accept the Police version".
