The deceased has been identified as Haruram Nath.
According to sources, the body was recovered on Thursday in a nearby pond.
The family member of the deceased said, “Three days after the body was recovered, I queried my aunt and cousin about the event. Though they admitted the crime but didn’t reveal the exact reason to kill him.”
