Basanti and her gang planned the whole incident and executed

Over the past months, Basanti had been planning to rob Dr.Paul's home and she was aware that they had gold and cash inside a cupboard.

Varsha's husband got in touch with other accused and through this accused they met brothers Himanshu and Akash Joshi, said Deo. Probably 7-8 people were involved in this crime.

When Basanti came to Dr. Paul's home for work, at the same time she made a video call to Varsha and showed her the structure of the house so that they could execute their plan successfully. She and her gang studied the doctor's routine and noted what work Dr. Paul does at what time in his routine.

On May 5, Himanshu, Aakash, and another man arrived in Delhi to analyze the locality and Dr. Paul's home before moving back to Haridwar. After two days, on May 7, the three of them, accompanied by two others, reached Delhi and stayed at a hotel in Sarai Kale Khan, till Friday, May 10.

Police said while explaining the incident that the accused brutally beat up Dr. Paul, gagged him, and tied him to a chair. They dragged the chair with Paul tied to it to the kitchen where they hit him on the head with a blunt object and Strangulated him with a dog leash. They had locked Dr. Paul's pet dog in the bathroom then they looted the home and escaped with 4-5 lakh cash and about 15 tola gold.

Basanti was not present when the incident happened so no one could suspect her.

When Dr. Paul's wife Dr. Neena arrived home she discovered Dr. Paul's body in the worst condition, she immediately called the local police station and police arrived on the spot. During the investigation on Saturday "When she was informed about the incident, she acted as shocked and broke down." However, her misguiding answers to some questions, along with CCTV footage proof, made her lead suspect. After further investigation, her lie was exposed and she was convicted and through her, the rest of the culprits were traced and arrested.

In conclusion of this incident, the police requested to verify their helper and staffer and said, "It doesn't matter how long they have been serving for... The verification not only helps in tracing the suspects in case of a mishappening but also acts as a deterrent. It may ward off criminal ideas from a person's mind given the police's scrutiny on them."
