The complainant, Sarvan Kumar, suspected that the crime was committed at the behest of Rambo and Gola, both residents of the same area, who had killed his nephew Ravi Kumar in August 2020 during the lockdown. He was also injured in the assault and was the prime witness in the case. He said in order to stop him from giving statement in the court, the accused fired at him.

On August 31, 2020, Ravi along with his paternal uncle Sarwan Kumar had gone to attend a birthday party when a dispute occurred. Dayal Chand, father of the deceased Ravi Kumar, told the police that when they did not return home, they started searching for them.

They looked for him in Bhootanpura locality from where they were informed that they had gone towards the Shivpuri side. He said when they reached there they saw the accused — Rambo, Gola and their unidentified accomplices — stabbing Ravi with sharp-edged weapons.

They also attacked and injured Sarwan Kumar who was trying to intervene and save Ravi who later died on way to hospital. A case under Section 302 of the IPC was registered at the Gate Hakima police station at that time.
