He told police that he had removed the gold ring wore by Krishnaroa on his left hand but forgot to take diamond ring from right hand. The robbery was known when the body was taken to home.

Katarpawar told police that he was busy with the last rituals and thus was late to file a police complaint. He alleged that the hospital staff might have stolen the ring while shifting the patient.
