On 31st July, a Muslim mob in Nuh of Mewat, Haryana, attacked thousands of Hindu devotees attending the Jalabhishek Yatra on Shravan Somvar. OpIndia accessed several FIRs registered in the case. In the FIR registered against rioters for the murder of Bajrang Dal activist Abhishek Rajput, it was revealed that Rajput was shot by the rioters first. Then one of the rioters attacked him with a sword, followed by other rioters hitting him with stones.

FIR was registered on the complaint of Mahesh, cousin of Abhishek, under Sections 148, 149, 307, 324, 302 of the Indian Penal Code and Section 25 of the Arms Act against Adil, Arsad, Azharuddin, Shakeel, Junaid, Jawed, Rahul, Ahmed, Shoaib, Langda, Altaf, Ameen and Inam.
