The drinking session went on till wee hours of Sunday. Around 2 am, Gavas wanted to have one more drink but realized that they had run out of the water to mix with the whiskey. In a lighter vein, Chaubey asked Gavas to mix his drink with his urine and the others in the group too teased him. Chaubey’s light-hearted suggestion was received with humor by the other members of the group. However, an angry Sandip Gavas picked up a log lying around and hit Chaubey on the head. When one of the friends, Vivek Singh tried to intervene, he too was assaulted. As Chaubey started bleeding, Gavas and the others fled.
