The victim, Shrikant, an ophthalmologist bleeds after Mika hit him hardly and he was being treated at Ambedkar Hospital. He suffered internal injury in his left ear due to the assault.

A senior police officer said, "In his complaint, Dr. Shrikant, has said that he was trying to communicate with a woman, who was participating in a gimmick that required segregation of male and female members of the audience. It was then that Mika summoned the doctor."
