At that moment Izaz Khan aged 30 years came along with his friend to fill petrol in his two-wheeler. The petrol pump attendants told Izaz Khan that it will take some time for them to vend the petrol since petrol is being refilled into their under-ground storage tank. Izaz Khan parked his two-wheeler near the pump and went to the place where Petrol was being transferred from the Petrol Carrier to the under-ground storage tank.

Since petrol is a very highly inflammable substance, common men are not permitted to stand near the under-ground storage tank while it is being refilled. Since Izaz’s movements and behavior were suspicious, he was asked to move away from the spot. However, Izaz did not move even a muscle.

When Izaz did not listen and move away in-spite of repeated requests, Jaikishan scolded him. This angered Izaz and he started using abusive words and profanity. Suddenly Izaz and his friend pounced on Jaikishan and started attacking him. As soon as the employees saw their boss being beaten, they became alert. While some ran to save him, others informed the police about the incident. However, as soon as the police reached the spot, both the accused fled from the scene.
