On May 30, 2008, a trial court had found Vikas and his cousin brother Vishal guilty and sentenced them to life imprisonment. Two months later, a third accused Sukhdev Pehalwan was also sentenced to life imprisonment by a Delhi court.

However, in 2015, Delhi High Court had upheld the trial court's verdict of life terms for the Yadav brothers and Pehalwan and awarded a jail term of 25 years without remission to the brothers and 20 years' imprisonment without remission to Pehalwan. In 2016, the apex court too agreed to the quantum of punishment awarded to the accused by the Delhi High Court.
