Investigations from various angles are being looked into. Balwinder had only recently tied up with his two friends, Nishant and Laxman to start an event management and did not have an office. The trio used to discuss business plans in a recently acquired Honda City. On Monday evening the three friends reached RK Puram at 5.45 pm, ordered food and cold drinks.

Laxman’s younger brother Kanhaiya noted that they had documents and were discussing business and decided to leave them alone. It was only at 10 pm that he went to check and found one of the doors open and the three occupants frothing from the mouth. While two were shifted to AIIMS and one to Trauma Center all three were declared dead.
