A Jagran report which also covered the incident too claims that Vikas was abused and assaulted by members of a “particular community” while he was sitting at his home. Later Pravin and Nazim who got involved were also assaulted by the mob. About Rs 35,000 were also allegedly looted from Nazim.

In the fight which ensued, three people were reported injured. Damage was also reported to a litchi farm in the village.

The report quotes Vikas as claiming that he had a complaint against the poor quality of cement which led to the attack. Incidentally, Arshad, on the other hand, is claiming that Nazim and his associates attacked his home during their dispute. He further alleged that his household members were assaulted and later a fake case was filed against them.

Following the incident, a police complaint was lodged, which resulted in the police conducting a flag march and inspector Ambika Prasad Bharadwaj deploying a force.
