According to Ravikant, the theft had taken place while he was returning home from the district court on August 1, 2023. At around 7.30 pm, the advocates car developed some snag near the PAC turn at the GT Road in Chandmari area. He parked the car there and went to his office in the Fazalganj area.

The spot from where the car was stolen came under the Cantt police station.Hearing the plea, Justice Saurabh Srivastava passed an order on September 2, directing the SHO to lodge an FIR. However no FIR was lodged. The matter was then raised before the Allahabad High Court, which asked the commissioner of police and the SHO to appear in person before the court on December 7 and explain why action should not be taken against them.Taking cognizance of the issue, commissioner of police RK Swarnkar instituted an inquiry against SHO Ajay Kumar Singh and also directed to book a case as per the law.
