The case dates back to January 15, 2013. Jagpal Beniwal and Raj Kumar were business partners.

Jagpal Beniwal was arrested in October, 2013. He was released from jail on November 18, 2015 after the Punjab and Haryana High Court granted him bail on medical grounds. He jumped bail and did not appear in the court again.
He was declared proclaimed offender and is still absconding.
