During the investigation, it was established that accused Vishal Sharma, Labha Ram alias Sanjay, Ashok Kumar alias Shoka were jointly doing the business of property, and they had sold the land of Haqiqat Raj, son of Munshi Ram, resident of Udheywalla after preparing fake sale deeds. Aggrieved by the same, Ajit Singh Dogra Deputy Advocate General had filed a case against them in the Court. So, they had hatched a criminal conspiracy to eliminate Ajit Singh Dogra.
