On the basis of autopsy report, police registered a murder case and considering the husband to be the prime suspect, he was taken in custody. During interrogation, the suspect confessed to have killed his wife. He disclosed that a violent quarrel occurred between them on the intervening night of June 03. Kamlesh dragged his wife to the bathroom and thrashed her thrice but every time she stood up and tried to hit him. When she stood up for the third time, she got hold of the soft organs of Kamlesh.
Kamlesh lost his temper and pushed her with full strength. Premin fell down on the ground and possibly went unconscious. Kamlesh left her lying in the bathroom and went outside. Soon he realized that he will get trapped in this case. So he spun a conspiracy and set her body on flames after pouring kerosene. Thereafter he woke up his family members and started shouting that Premin has committed self immolation. Police have booked Kamlesh Sahu (38) son of Lakhan Lal Sahu a resident of village Khapri under the provisions mentioned in section 302, 201 of IPC.
