The motive

Dutt was the mastermind behind the whole conspiracy. He met the second accused on an online platform and lured him with a cash amount of Rs 1 lakh. Around Rs 5,000 was given as an advance to another accused. The motive behind the conspiracy was Nikhil's frustration with his own life, as he was not able to have a child even after 6 years of marriage. Dutt disclosed that he purchased the stolen motorcycle from one of his known namely Gagan. The said motorcycle was also recovered from the spot at the time of the raid.

"To fulfill the child desire of his wife and mother, he hatched the conspiracy of kidnapping the child. He even made a fake certificate of child adoption in the name of Geeta Ashram, Gurugram to mislead state machinery as well as his family," Police said.
