Reportedly, the mob attacked the authorities who went there to demolish a madrasa, which was built on illegally encroached government land near the Banbhulpura police station. The mob pelted stones on police personnel and the workers of the Haldwani Municipal Corporation. After this, they went on to surround the police station and set fire to the vehicles stationed outside.

A transformer was also set on fire by the mob, which resulted in power outage in the area. And as the mob surrounded the Banbhulpura police station, several journalists and administration officials. During clashes with the anarchical mob, some policemen, both male and female officers, and municipal corporation workers, including the SDM, were injured.
