On June 24, a group of bikers assaulted a traffic policeman on being stopped at SD Khongwir junction, Mawlai Iewrynghep. The bikers were reportedly stopped for not wearing helmets. On their way back they assaulted a Swiggy delivery boy near Mahari Petrol Pump, Jaiaw and later headed towards Jaiaw Pdeng.

They then stopped at ES Restaurant and assaulted the two interns. Two FIRs were filed at Lumdiengjri police station and one at Mawlai police station.
