After the incident locals and neighbours of the deceased claimed that they suspect the assailants to be from Bihar and were allegedly sent by a person named W Yadav.

Police too claimed that there was a chance of some personal enmity behind the killing and they were investigating all aspects of the case.

However, locals gathered around the house of Yadav and asked how could such an incident take place in the middle of the city.

One of his relatives questioned that every now and then police intercept motorcycles in the city and check them even if they are following the rules, they how could assailants escape the police and execute such a crime.
