The mastermind Gopal Dubey narrated the whole incident to the police and said that one of his neighbours & friend Anil Prajapati was suffering from piles and was a drunkard. Giving details SP Akash Tomar said that the main conspirator Gopal Dubey told the police that Prajapati had turned weak due to excessive blood loss. He was assisted by his brother Hemant.
