The victim’s mother claimed that Vijay did not return home until the next morning, but Bua showed up to return his scooter, but did not reveal anything about Vijay.
The police booked two people and arrested Bua Singh. Kaka would be free.

Nirmal Singh has demanded justice for his son. Vijay had passed his Class XII and was planning to go to Dubai for work.
Senior police officials, who arrived at the scene, assured the family that the accused would soon be arrested. The police, however, claimed that there was no rivalry between Bua Singh and Vijay. Further investigations are ongoing.
