A salesman by profession, Sahil was reportedly talkinh on his phone when the incident took place.

When Muttappa came out of the car to question Sahil, the latter tried to escape without stopping his scooter. Muttappa somehow managed to cling on to the rear part of the scooter but Sahil, instead of stopping the two-wheeler, sped away, dragging Muttappa along.

Sahil kept on driving for nearly 1 km, with Muttappa clinging on to the scooter before some another car and and auto-rickshaw waylaid him, forcing Sahil to stop.

Sahil was then beaten up by the public who later handed him over to the police.
