He was immediately arrested and during questioning, he said the reason behind the murder.
He claimed that he had suspected Gulshana of cheating on him but on the night of the incident, they had a fight over some money. This led to the argument being linked to the cheating issue.

After she died, he fled with the baby. The baby was later found at the grandmother’s house.
