He began a campaign to free the people who had been confined in the house, which had turned into a terrorist hideout. He urged his team not to break the terrorists' siege.
Meanwhile, additional units of security forces also arrived. Postponing the operation to kill the terrorists, efforts began to persuade them to surrender. This went on till 10 o'clock in the night.
Meanwhile, news came that there are some other people along with the terrorists in the house. Babu Ram again went ahead and when he started evacuating the people trapped there again, he fell victim to the bullets of the terrorists.
