DCP V Satyanarayana said that the death occurred during the friendly bout and discarded all conspiracy theories associated with the death. He said, “there is no conspiracy, no revenge or no love angle to the death. They fought in order to find the group’s strongman.”
“Nine injuries, including abdominal, were found on Nabeel’s body,” he added.
The DCP stated that minors would be sent to juvenile courts. Owais Patel is the person who fought with Nabeel.

Md Waseem alias Dollar is the referee where as Md Sultan Mirza is seen instructing Owais in his ear. Md Obaid is the commentator and the one who filmed the video.
“This is nothing but willful negligence of parents and undisciplinary attitude of youngsters not knowing the consequences. They created a fake story of Nabeel dying during performing bike stunts. All injuries found on his body happened during the fight,” said the DCP.
Meanwhile, the parents of Nabeel have asked for capital punishment for all the accused.
