According to Nabaraj BK, a family member of the victim, the group of non-Dalit men kept coming to their homes and beating them. Therefore the complaint was filed at the police.
Bikas BK’s head was deeply wounded due to the beating so he was taken to Nepalgunj Medical College for treatment. Sunil BK was taken to Ghodaghodi Hospital for treatment, added Nabaraj.

According to Inspector Hari Sharan Bhatta of the Area Police Office, the complaint was not filed initially because police wanted to discuss and reconcile the issue on August 25 including both the parties.
He added that search is ongoing for those involved in the incident.
