On August 20, the trio invited Ankit, 25, a distant relative of Pramod, for a "party" and took him to Baghpat Industrial Area in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh where they shot him in the forehead and burnt his face to conceal his identity.

Three days later, the partially burnt body of the victim was found at an isolated place in Niwara. As the body could not be identified, it was preserved in the hospital, the police said.
