Four days later on January 19, the husband Ramkumar came and requested his wife to accompany him to their house at Naseeb Vihar, Village Ilaychipur, Loni, Gaziabad, UP, but Mansi refused. When she refused, Ramkumar stayed at his in-laws' house in the national capital till evening of next day and kept requesting his wife.

Mansi's mother Rekha Bajaj was also present there. The police said that at about 7.30 p.m. on January 20, Mansi's mother went to the market leaving the couple in the house.

"At this time, the accused husband Ram Kumar attacked his wife Mansi with a surgical blade to eliminate her and caused multiple severe injuries around the neck and over both cheeks. After assuring himself that Manshi had died, Ram Kumar fled away from the spot," the official said.

When the injured wife was taken to the hospital, she had lost a lot of blood. A Delhi Police Constable then came forward and donated his blood to save the life of the injured wife.

"As the police team and Babulal peeked from the door, accused Ram Kumar was found hanging from a ceiling fan," the official said.

Accordingly, local police from Signature City, Tronica City police station, Ghaziabad, UP were informed. The local police then broke open the doors in presence of local witnesses. The person found hanging was identified by Babulal as accused Ram Kumar.
