Singh is posted as executive officer at Dobhi Nagar Panchayat in Gaya district. Initially he was admitted to a private hospital for treatment but he was later referred to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi for further treatment.

Danapur ASP, Abhinav Dhiman stated that the injured officer was transported to AIIMS, New Delhi, by a train ambulance. Dhiman added that an FIR had been registered regarding the incident.

The victim’s cousin Vijay Kumar claimed that both the accused were sons of Lalu’s nephew Nagendra Yadav. The accused have been identified as Tanuj Yadav and Nayan Yadav. Nagendra Yadav`s father late Mahavir Rai was the elder brother of Lalu.

Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav asserted to the media that he had already directed police officers to take strong action against the accused, emphasizing that the law would take its course, irrespective of the accused being relatives of any politician.
