Ishmit, in his mid-20s, was celebrating with 10 of his friends on the third floor of the building. The argument started when one of his friends, Vijaydeep, went to the floor above and asked the DJ, Deepak Bisht, to change the song. Bisht reportedly refused, which led to shouting and blew up.

As Ishmit's friends fought with the DJ and other bar staff, chairs were flung and beer bottles were smashed and used as weapons, witnesses told the police.
