During the preliminary investigation, the police found that Maya Devi had a property dispute with her son Rajbir, who is the eldest of the four sons. While speaking to news agency IANS, Atul Thakur said, "Rajbir was the only one present in the house when the crime took place. He was taken into custody and questioned. Initially, he tried to mislead the police, but later confessed that he killed his mother with the help of the son."
According to the police officials, a civil case over property between Rajbir, a mason, and his mother is pending before the court. Rajbir's mother Maya Devi had disconnected electricity to her son's living area and wanted him to vacate the portion of the property.
Hence, the police suspect that Rajbir and his juvenile son must have committed the crime. The two were booked under section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code.
