On reaching, Das went straight to Saigal’s residence on the 12th floor, lying to the guard that he wants to go to the fourth floor. Luckily, Saigal was not at home then. Das tried to barge into the house as soon as her uncle answered the door. The actor's uncle tried to stop him, managed to close the door. He then called the security guard and also the police control room. Within no time, a police jeep was sent to the spot and the intruder was arrested.

CCTV footage from the concerned vicinity has been collected by the police. The police have also recorded the statements of the security guard and Saigal’s family. An FIR has also been registered for the same, under section 452 (House-trespass after preparation for hurt, assault or wrongful restraint) of the Indian Penal Code.
