As per Jyoti’s statement of the victim's wife, in her complaint, said that her husband Sagar Markad, his mother and their two-year-old daughter boarded the general compartment of the train from Pune station at around 12.45 am on Thursday. The compartment was packed and since there was no place to sit, Sagar requested some women in the general compartment to make some space for his wife. The women, however, did not agree, and on the contrary, started arguing with Sagar. The argument escalated and suddenly the women along with the men they were accompanied by started beating Sagar with sticks. Jyoti said that she cried for help but no one in the compartment dared to intervene.

On the next stoppage he was helped by the Railway police and rushed to hospital, however he was brought dead.
