They convened on the 1st of August and a couple of days later to conclude the deal.

The criminal made sure Sohan was killed as he covered the victim’s face with a cloth till he eventually died of asphyxiation. He immediately fled that place with the motorcycle, helmet and the poor soul’s wallet before withdrawing Rs. 27,000 from his bank account through ATM card.
