An argument ensued between the two parties when the policemen hit the driver with the butt of his gun.
An eyewithness recorded that “The man was wearing a LASAMBUS uniform and I think he also showed them his identity card too. They still did not let him go. I did not think the altercation was serious when I heard them arguing” – Punch
Some other eyewitnesses said the policemen wanted the driver to bribe them but the deceased chose to call someone for help, adding that this infuriated the policemen.
