According to reports, Omadatt Singh had returned home at approximately 07:45h after transporting coconuts and was standing outside his house when he heard a loud explosion but later realised that it was a gunshot which injured his leg.

Shortly after, several gunshots were fired and the suspect then approached Singh at gunpoint, demanding a 120-pennyweight gold chain that he was wearing.
