Instead of taking action against the thieves, SI Shankar made negotiations and asked the victims to compromise with the thieves. As they were not getting justice, the couple escalated the issue to the higher-ups, who found out that the SI was working hand-in-glove with the perpetrators of the crime.

Uppal circle inspector has informed the media that five persons have been arrested on Wednesday for extorting money from the victims and they were sent for judicial remand.
