When the priests and other temple workers confronted him and asked him to stop abusing the Hindu deities, Manzoor Ali is said to have abused them as well.
Following the incident, the temple authorities filed a complaint with the local police demanding the arrest of Manzoor Ali. The police acted swiftly to arrest Ali and seized his mobile phone which he used for recording the vulgar act.
