The following day (April 15), the case was transferred to V V Puram station, in Mysuru, as the said criminal acts had allegedly occurred at the house located in the said police limits.

 ACP (NR Sub-division) Umesh G Shet, the investigation officer (IO) in the case, had recorded the statements of Murthy couple. The Murthy couple had obtained anticipatory bail in the case.
