As the assailants tried to enter the premises, the guard—Surinder Singh—resisted their entry. The robbers snatched his weapon, and took out the bullets.

The guard continued to fight, during which, the three other robbers reportedly tried to terrorise the manager, staff, and customers present at the spot with their revolvers.
