- The young man, who was hit in the face, was bleeding from his ear and fell unconscious on the ground
- The young man died at the hospital while the trial of the case was continuing.
The expatriate told the court that the young man was unjustifiably provoked while he was engaged in removing waste from the industrial establishment. The young man and a few others came and told him to finish his work quickly while he was enduring the hardships of hard work. He was not his supervisor or the person in charge of looking after himself. His action itself was very provocative. However, he told the court that he was slapped in the face as he and his friends continued to mock him.
But the young man, who was hit in the face, was bleeding from his ear and fell unconscious on the ground. He was rushed to a hospital where he underwent various surgeries but succumbed to his injuries a few days later. The death occurred while the case was being tried. He was initially charged with assault, but was charged with murder after his death.
