As Kishan continued to refuse, sources said, an enraged Gopal attempted to stab Kishan which the victim tried to resist.However, Gopal allegedly stabbed him in his stomach.

Kishan ran away from the spot and was spotted by another Rashtrapati Bhavan employee who took him to Ram Manohar Lohia hospital.Initially, police could not establish the chain of events as Kishan remained unfit for statement.
