According to Ratibad police, Deepak Soni, Varad Mehta and Shobhit Jain, the victims, are real estate businessmen who had gone for a party at a farm house in Ratibad and were returning home in a SUV driven by Warad Mehta, who also owns a bar in MP Nagar.

Mehta spotted a boulder on the road near Sanskar Valley school. As soon as he stopped the vehicle, a group of people started pelting stones.

Mehta tried to move back the vehicle but it skidded off the road. The miscreants attacked them, made off with four rings including a diamond rings and cash worth Rs 17,500 and threatened with consequences if the victims come to the area again.
