However  Lokesh overtook the second bus after a while and stopped his vehicle. There was a heated exchange of words between the bus drivers and his supporters with Lokesh and his friends. The two groups had a hand to hand combat. Lokesh and three of his friends were admitted to a private hospital in Ujire. Bus drivers and their supporters were also injured.  The  fight created a  jam of vehicles on the Charmadi Ghat. The police had a hard time removing the vehicles that were abandoned on the ghat - this type of ’Road rage’ and traffic disruption is seen often these days in the region.
