Delhi Police arrested Sahil's father, two cousins Ashish and Naveen and two friends Amar and Lokesh after the interrogation.
According to the police, during interrogation, Sahil disclosed that the deceased was asking him not to marry another girl because both he and Nikki had already solemnised their marriage in the year 2020. She was actually his wife and not live-in partner.
