As they didn’t know how to drive, they called their friend Saurabh to help them in driving the car,” said the police.
The police said that those people left from there. “On the way, Govind’s sister Nisha called Govind and said that as he remained untraceable, she had lodged a missing complaint with the police.

Thereafter, they reached Ramadevi area and from there Kanpur Dehat’s Rania where the body of Govind was thrown in the drain near the Raipur village. After the murder, the five accused told Sagar that they have killed Govind and asked him come and take his share. The looted ring and chain were given to Aditya, so that he could sell it and obtain money. The looted car was parked at the stand at the Ghantaghar.
