However, the culprit realised that he has attacked the wrong man when he turned back to look at his face and he fled from the spot, throwing the knife on the floor. Shaikh reportedly said that the intention behind the attack was because he wanted to seek revenge against some locals who had assaulted him for no fault of his.

This was a revenge plan hatched by Shaikh. Bandra police solved the case within 2 hours and immediately arrested Shaikh. The victim was rushed to Leelavati Hospital where he underwent a surgery for the laceration on his cheek. His condition is stable, after getting 15 stitches for the cut. CCTV grabs helped police to track Shaikh, who regrets attacking the wrong man.
