An offence under Indian Penal Code (IPC) section 394 (voluntarily causing hurt in committing robbery) and 34 (common intention) had been registered with the police at that time.

In the second incident that took place on September 29, they tried to snatch the mobile phone of a tempo driver, who was taking rest under a tree at Mankoli bridge on the Bhiwandi-Nashik road. They failed in their attempt, and the victim held their motorcycle, due to which they fell down.
