According to reports, a man Uttam Gaur complained to the police said his father Shailesh Gaur called him up on March 27, 2021 that Siddharth had threatened him with dire consequences because of some family disputes.
He went to the house of Siddharth in Neemanpur at 12:30am on March 30 along with his friend Aditya. When Siddharth opened the door, Uttam wanted to know from him the reasons for harassing his father.
Siddharth flew off the handle and began to abuse Uttam. Immediately after hurling abuses at the latter, he brought a gun and shot at him. Both Uttam and Aditya sustained injuries in the firing.
