According to the police, the incident occurred around 1.30 am on Nala Road in Shamannagowda Layout.

A resident, Srinivas Naidu, called the police complaining that the trio was creating a ruckus in the area. Following the complaint, police arrived at the spot and questioned them.

However, the trio entered into a heated argument with the police and also assaulted them, with Rishika allegedly biting the wrist of one of the policemen.

Meanwhile, the commotion awakened the residents who began to gather there. This forced Tanvir and Rishika to flee while the residents caught Ali and handed him over to the police. 

Ali had come to the area on his two-wheeler while Rishika and Tanvir came in a car. Rishika is from Delhi while Ali is from Tamil Nadu. Tanvir is said to be a resident of Frazer Town.
