According to the owner of a tea stall on the side of the road where the incident took place, a man who had come for a snack was accused by another person for a Facebook post, which showed sympathy for Sharma. The two young men quarreled for a while and then the person who had committed the crime on a social media post walked away, but a few minutes later returned with several others carrying sticks and rods.
