The accused was identified as, Baswaraju Prakash and native of Bangalore, Karnataka State.

He said, "The modus operandi of the accused was to commit a burglary from a locked house during night times. In order to do that, he would recee the entire area a day in advance and would strike accordingly. After committing the offence, he used to sell the gold ornaments to pawn brokers in his State and earned money illegally to fulfill his lavish lifestyle."
