Police have also released numbers (78370-18502, 98159-00016 and 98159-00001) on which any such information can be shared. Police have also prepared a computerised sketch of one of the suspects following details provided by eyewitnesses.

The CCTV footage collected by police from various cameras in the vicinity of the area where Chand Kaur was shot dead has proved to be of no help.

On February 18, police had announced Rs 5 lakh reward for information on assailants who shot at Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) leader Naresh Kumar and Shiv Sena youth wing leader Amit Arora. However, no one has so far come forward with information on the attacks
