A preliminary investigation revealed that the main accused, Rajesh, had eloped with Tarachand's sister a year ago. Subsequently, Tarachand's sister severed all ties with Rajesh and came back to her parents' house. She later got married to another man. Rajesh recently ran into her at a wedding, where he tried to speak to her, the police said. Tarachand had threatened Rajesh against speaking to his sister. This had enraged Rajesh, who, along with his accomplices, had attacked Tarachand and his friends.
