The family of Karan had alleged in its statement issued on Monday that, “On the evening of September 11, family members and a cousin went to Karan's rented apartment, Joy Apartments in Khar, along with the police. Since the key to this apartment was not found on Karan's person and neither was it with the police, we had contacted the landlord through the broker who had arranged the rental for Karan.

It was the landlord and broker who took us in along with the police. What was immediately obvious to us all was the absence of any evidence of alcohol, drugs, or medication of any description. The police checked the apartment in our presence. Karan's personal belongings were cleared out of this apartment. Some of his belongings were not found in the rented apartment. Among other things, Karan's laptop has still not been recovered."
