According to reports, the incident unfolded in the Barkagaon police station area of Hazaribagh.

On his way back, he was returning to Gondalpura by bike with his friend Vicky Rana. Meanwhile, his bike was forcibly stopped when they were passing through the Muslim-dominated locality of Badam.

The miscreants who stopped Diwakar are said to be Badam residents Zeeshan, Naseeb, and Monty Khan. Additionally, 30 to 40 other unidentified individuals also joined them. It is alleged that all of them started abusing the victim and hurled casteist slurs. 

After some time, the miscreants took out iron pipes from a nearby shop and started beating Diwakar and Vicky Rana. Diwakar suffered injuries on his neck and face in the attack. The mob also physically assaulted Diwakar and Vicky and kicked and punched them.
