CCTV footage available with India Today clearly shows the altercation between the cinema hall staff and the men.

The incident happened on April 15 when some men, said to be having close links with a local BJP leader, entered into a fracas with the cinema hall staff over checking and frisking done by them.

Ajay Phulwari, an advocate and president of BJP youth wing Aashapura Mata Committee had arrived at the cinema hall with a friend of his, Harish, and once there, he had an altercation with the security personnel who tried to frisk them.

Following the altercation, Phulwari allegedly summoned around 20 men, including Virendra Singh Rawat, Ajay Chandel and others, who reached the cinema hall and thrashed the security guard and vandalised the property.

When India Today spoke with the concerned security guard, Ajay Parcha, he mentioned, "They had beaten me up after I objected to the abuse they hurled at me. Even I tried to raise my hand. But later, 20 - 25 men came, they thrashed and caused ruckus."

Parcha claimed there was pressure on him to not register a case against the accused persons.
