According to the police, the duo hatched a plan to rob the house, made a recce prior to the attempt and selected the house. As part of the hatched plan, Sushil called Amita Mahnot (who is the house owner) and informed her that they had brought a courier in the name of NK Jain. As such, her servant went down to receive the courier. The duo, who covered their faces one by one (Susil) wearing a helmet and another Prem Chandra wearing a face mask & cap, entered the house forcefully with the intention of robbing the house.

"Later, Premchandra, the accused, proceeded directly to the kitchen where he threatened the maid by holding a knife to her throat. This led to a confrontation involving a minor girl (Amita's daughter) and Sushil. Amita intervened to thwart the robbery. In the ensuing struggle, Sushil brandished a homemade pistol from his bag, attempting to threaten both mother and daughter. Amita, skilled in martial arts, kicked Sushil and disarmed him. Sustaining injuries, Sushil fled from the house. Meanwhile, unaware of the commotion outside, a second individual inside the house was apprehended by onlookers who heard the disturbance," the release stated.
