After that, the cops went through the local CCTV footage and saw a strange entry into the property by a woman wearing a burqa. After a technical examination by the police, Shweta, the older daughter of Kamlesh, 31, was taken into custody. During interrogation, the accused admitted to the police that she had organised this crime since her mother liked her younger sister more. She said that she was also somewhat indebted and that her sentiments of envy and hate overcame her.

Shweta revealed to the police that she came up with this complex plan to settle her debts. She said that her mother had kept the majority of the jewellery she took for her sister's wedding but that some of it was her own that she wanted to keep. Then, according to the authorities, she disclosed how she gradually prepared for the heist day. To begin with, Shweta initially left her mother's house in January, according to the police. Kamlesh assisted her older daughter in setting up her new residence for a few days. When her younger daughter departed for work, she would visit Shweta at her home.
