The accused had hatched the sinister plan of first abducting any unsuspecting girl and then raping her when they were out for a joyride on the night of December 16.

After the paramedical student and her male friend boarded the bus, the accused decided to rape her and later kill both of them to destroy the evidence.

During the investigation blood stains were found in five places inside the bus. The blood stains were found on the sixth seat, back door, back stairs and the floor. Ram Singh had also bitten the braveheart and so he was made to under saliva test.

The bus was being driven by other accused and Ram Singh's brother, Mukesh, when the the crime was being committed. When he too joined the other accused in raping the girl, the driver's seat was taken by Akshay Singh Thakur.
