Mukesh, however, did not want Kiran to live with her parents and they both had been fighting and arguing over the same for the last few days. Furious over his wife’s demand to stay with her parents for a few days, Mukesh took the girl to the top floor of their building.

When he did not return with the child for quite some time, Kiran went upstairs to check on the baby. When Mukesh did not open the door for a while, Kiran’s brother came and they both started banging on the door. When Mukesh finally opened the door, he told Kiran that he strangulated the infant and killed her.
