The police said that CCTV footages from Murthal are yet to be scanned, adding that Ashutosh and Ankush Khanna, two other accused in the case, are still on the run.
Meanwhile, the police on Thursday added Section 201 (destruction of evidence) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) to the FIR registered in the case.
The police said that the accused tried to destroy evidence, hence Section 201 has been added to the FIR.
