As per a report in Times of India, Ravi Kumar, Saurabh Gupta and Ramesh Verma were travelling in a car owned by Ravi from Ram Bhavan crossing to Transportnagar on Sunday night. When they were passing near Arya Kanya Gali, their car was stuck in a Muharram procession near Bargad Gali. As the trio tried to move their car through the procession, an argument was initiated with a group nearby.

Following the argument, a mob allegedly started attacking the car with iron rods and sticks. The locals reportedly alerted the police who intervened to get the situation under control and allowed the car to drive through the narrow lane.
