Reportedly, the altercation arose over fare discrepancies during the student's journey from Shantipuram Phaphamau to Raymond via an electric bus headed to the engineering college. Hashmi suddenly attacked Vishwakarma near the college gate with a baton.

The accused fled the bus before being apprehended. He hails from Hajiganj in the Soraon police station vicinity. Vishwakarma, 24, a resident of Pratappur Phulpur, sustained severe injuries, prompting widespread outrage among city bus personnel.

During an evening confrontation, when the police interrogated Hashmi about his hidden weapons, he opened fire at the officers, resulting in a leg injury after the police retaliated, enabling his subsequent arrest.
