During the hearing of the petition, the court had earlier directed the local investigating agency to procure details of cell phone records of the deceased on the date of incident to clarify the exact time of the incident. This was necessary as the name of a Chhota Rajan gang member Vicky Malhotra had come up in connection with the murder during narco-analysis of Tanaji Patel, a suspect in the case.
