Deepak Bafna from Nashik, with his wife and a relative had come to the city in the night of May 11. As per Deepak, he arrived after getting DM's permission and all relative documents from Nashik. In the entire journey, they did not face any issue as everywhere they were allowed to go to their destination after seeing permission but their car was stopped by police at Rau Square.

He immediately reached Rau police station to lodge a complaint but to no avail. Deepak informed that he visited the police station for three consecutive days but could not meet the police station in charge Dinesh Verma. On May 13, on his way back to Nashik, he sought an appointment with Rau TI Verma but was told that the concerned official was in the area for patrolling so he could not meet him.
