The incident occurred when Pulkit was returning home from office. Pulkit told police that 5 people were drinking liquor inside a shop near his house. They snatched his chain and bashed him up. When he tried to resists, the assailants entered Pulkit's house to beat him up again.
Pulkit's sisters Vibhuti and Niharika were also beaten up by the hoodlums. Vibhuti told India TV that all this happened in the presence of the local police. The policemen did not come to their rescue.
