In October, the police arrested Dharminder Singh (28), who had allegedly assisted in the murder by providing the assailants accommodation at King Palace Hotel in Sector 80, Mohali. Later, Shubham Prajapati was arrested by the Punjab Police on October 23 after which the UT police brought him on a production warrant on October 28. During his interrogation, Shubham had revealed that the murder was carried out at the behest of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi and Raju Basodi. In November, another accused, Manjeet, was arrested by the Delhi Police and he was also brought on a production warrant by the UT police.
