OC, Sonari police station, Dharambir Singh said that they are investigating the incident.
“During investigation we found that a woman who stays in the second floor of a four-storeyed apartment building behind Sahu’s house had seen two teen-agers standing on the premises of the house. As there was a commotion and police party arrived at scene of crime, the woman came and revealed about what she had seen,” Singh said.

Incidentally, the OC said that he also spoke to Tarun over phone and asked about the ornaments he had kept in his room.
“When we spoke to Tarun said neither he nor his wife had not left any ornament at their room as they have settled in Bangalore itself. But as Deepak Sahu, who resides at the house, has given in writting, we will have to consider that the ornament as mentioned by the informant has been stolen,” said the OC.
