Desai then drove towards Atalia village in Bharuch district and burnt the body of Patel near a closed hotel of his friend Kiritsinh Jadeja, an accomplice in the murder. Desai had then claimed that Patel went missing on her own and on June 11, Patel’s father filed a missing persons complaint at Karjan police station. Meanwhile, the probe of finding Patel was handed over to Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) and Ahmedabad DCB by state Home Minister Pradipsinh Jadjea. On July 24, 49 days after Patel went missing, police had arrested Desai and his accomplice Kiritsinh Jadeja for the murder.
Desai was living with his partner Sweety Patel and their two year old son at his Karjan residence. The duo had been living together since 2016 however in 2017, Desai had gotten legally married to another Ahmedabad based woman with whom he has a three year old daughter.
Recently, his legal wife had moved to Vadodara which created a rift between Desai and Patel as the latter wanted her partner to divorce his wife. According to police, Desai took the extreme step as he was unable to “handle the social pressure.”
