When the enquired, the mother said her daughter-in-law has locked the door from inside. The neighbours contacted the police. Later when the police entered the house, the woman and her child were found dead. The bodies were shifted to a hospital. The 80-year-old mother was admitted to a hospital as she was weak standing outside all-day.

Biju worked as a belt technician at Wonderla company in Madeena airport. He lost his job recently. His wife is a Manipur native. She was trying to get a job for her in the nursing sector. Friends say they don't know much about Biju's family as he isn't close with anyone.
