An officer involved in the investigation says that it shows the closeness of the relationship between them.
It was seen that there were regular conversations on the telephone as well. Police told from technical analysis that before the incident, two shooters and Madan had a meeting at the hotel.
“It has been confirmed that everything from weapon handling to reiki was done by Madan,” says an official from Kathmandu’s district police complex. .

Only mother and brother are in the room in New Road.
According to the police, he is also involved in robbery and gambling. According to sources, he had drowned a lot of money in casinos as well. It is not clear how she and Uday Sethi knew each other. The team of investigating officers has gone to the district jail Rasuva to interrogate Uday.
Police have recovered the motorcycle used by Madan before the incident. Police suspect that the motorcycle may have been used to chase Lal Mohammad in the past. The motorcycle used in the incident has not yet been recovered.
