The police have filed 1,917 charge sheets against the accused. The latter have also been produced for hearings in the 3rd and 4th Metropolitan Magistrate Courts in Nampally.

Of the total accused, the presiding officers of the two courts sentenced 58 to imprisonment - the accused were all sent to Chanchalguda Jail. While 3 were imprisoned for 9 days, 10 were sentenced to a week in jail. 25 others were jailed for 5 days, 20 for 2 days. 14 other accused persons were sentenced to standing punishment till the Rising of the Court.
