Inspector General of Police G.N Purohit informed that, the accused are not identified yet but through some clues, it is assumed that they might be from the neighboring state of Haryana.
Editing & Update We were informed that there were no cameras installed in any of the petrol pumps, however after noticing the first pic of the pump, we realized it as a mistake by our part, hence we removed the line stating “there were no cameras installed…”
