According to the police, a dairy owner, Arjun Bansal, who lived behind the Laxman temple in Bharatpur, had filed a complaint with the Atalband police that ₹20 lakh cash was stolen from his house on November 4. Following the complaint, superintendent of police Anil Kumar Tank constituted a police team, led by Manish Sharma, the station house officer of Atalband police station, to investigate the matter.
