Krishna Kumar from Innoli was also beaten up by the group. The incident occurred soon after the procession passed by a mosque in Boliyaru.

Both victims are currently being treated at a private hospital in Deralakatte, and one of them has undergone minor surgery. Doctors have stated that they are out of danger. A case has been registered within the Konaje police station limits, and the police have launched a hunt for the attackers.
