According to the police, the accused himself had launched a manhunt on the night of January 22 along with other villagers to look for Jaynti claiming that he had not returned home from work that night.

Investigating officer JM Padhiyar said,
The victim’s father had raised suspicion over his death, which is why we started investigating the possibility of a murder. When questioned, Aklesh confessed that he had killed Jaynti with the help of Narayan.
The victim had fought with his wife that night and had even allegedly beaten her up. Angry over this, the two accused first thrashed him and then strangulated him with a saree. They then took help of two other accused – Pinesh Nayak and Naresh Nayak – to hang the body from the tree with the saree.

She was threatened not to speak to the police otherwise her children would be harmed.
All the accused have been booked under IPC sections 302 (murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence).
