According to the prosecution, Gade "cruelly" killed the cat and disposed of the carcass at Indira Nagar in suburban Chembur in May 2018. Based on a complaint filed by RCF police station's sub- inspector Nirali Rohit, a case was registered against Gade.

The accused later admitted to his guilt and prayed for minimum imprisonment. "He submitted that there was no pressure or undue influence on him for admitting the guilt. Therefore, his plea is accepted," the court said in its order. The court further said that since the accused was a "physically and mentally sick person" it took a lenient view while awarding him the sentence.
