According to Dainik Jagran, the brother of the woman, Salem had called Sanjay to meet him on 16 August, after which he went missing. The woman’s father and a neighbour, along with her brother, have been arrested and have confessed to the crime.

An officer from Dabua police station told Swarajya that the body had decayed, suggesting the murder happened a few days ago. "The body has been sent to Rohtak PGI. We are awaiting the post-mortem report," he said.
