When the father returned, he found Murthy and his son missing. Murthy had taken the boy to a deserted area near the Air Force Chief Engineer’s office in Gorguntepalya in an auto rickshaw and had sex. When the child started crying, he was afraid that someone would catch him. He bludgeoned the boy to death using a cement mold.

The then Rajagopalnagar Police Inspector HK Mahananda had arrested Murthy a day after the offence. Murthy was 18 when he committed the heinous crime. Mahananda had investigated and submitted the indictment. Prosecutor P Krishnaveni had appeared and pleaded in court.
