Investigating officer ASI Kulwinder Singh said Jyoti Devi told the police that she was married to Mohan Singh around 20 years ago. She alleged that the accused (Sonia) used to harass her husband. On Saturday evening, the accused called her son from the mobile of her husband that Mohan Singh had consumed some poisonous substance and was admitted to Guru Nanak Dev Hospital.
