Upon reaching the PG, one of Babu's associates, a resident of Mangammanapalya, allegedly jumped the wall and began banging on the doors, demanding to be let in.

The ruckus woke the PG owner Bhaskar Reddy Amabavaram and Jagan ReddyAmabavaram, who went up to the window and instructed the men to leave the building immediately.

When Bhaskar's brother Jagan, asked through the closed door what they wanted to which Babu replied that he and his friends wanted to party in the PG. When told they couldn't enter, the man who knocked the door then started breaking flower pots. Jagan then opened the door and tried to stop him. Babu's aide then smashed a pot on Jagan's head.

A complaint was filed by Bhaskar Reddy against the attackers in Bandepalya police station, in which he states that Mangammanapalya resident Babu and his five aides came to 'Green House Ladies PG' in BLK Colony of Mangammanapalya at about 12.10 am, and attacked them.

On Thursday, the Bandepalya Police arrested Babu. However, the police are yet to track down the other unidentified suspects.
