The actor was immediately taken to a hospital and was under medical care at the Ernakulam Rajagiri hospital. Fortunately, there was no damage to internal organs, but he lost a chest muscle. He underwent treatment in Rajagiri Hospital, Ernakulam, and left hospital without any complication. According to reports, Baburaj got into a heated argument with locals when he brought in a few labourers to clean the pond located at his resort, Whitemist Emerald.

They contented that they drew water from the pond for their daily use and draining it will cause water shortage during the summer.[7]
