In a major twist, Mansukh, a car parts dealer was found near a creek near Mumbai. He was missing since thursday night, after which a case of accidental death was filed. The case has been transferred to the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS).
Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said that the SUV belonged to another man, Sam Muteb. It was Mansukh who did the interiors of the car. Mansukh is a spare car parts businessman who reported the car stolen. He did not return the car to its owner as he was not paid for working on its interiors.

After he was found dead, the opposition BJP in the Maharashtra assembly demanded that the case to be handed over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
