Party sources alleged that Patil and his supporters stepped on the stage, brandishing sharp weapons. They threatened the guests and fired a few rounds in the air. Patil’s supporters, in turn, alleged that Malik’s supporters tried to injure them.

Malik and Patil levelled allegations against each other. The two registered complaints with the police, naming each other as the accused.

The police had filed the cases under sections of the Indian Penal Code relating to attempt to murder and rioting, as well as under sections of the Arms Act.

The police seized three firearms from the party and sent them to forensic science laboratory. Members of both groups were arrested. However, the two leaders have reportedly buried the hatchet after higher-ups in the party got involved.

Police sources said the cases are weak and will not hold up in court. “The outcome of such cases depends on their merit. As the people involved in these cases were injured, we will decide upon a further course of action,” said a police officer privy to the investigation.
