The report informs that the accused were nabbed by police from Jalpally on Monday morning. They confessed to killing Khaleel as he was putting pressure on Rasheed to return the Rs 15 lakh loan that the latter had taken just before lockdown to renovate his restaurant. N Prakash Reddy, deputy commissioner of police of the Shamshabad zone was quoted in the report saying as losses mounting due to COVID-19 induced lockdown, Rasheed failed to return the loan and kept paying only interest. With one loan already on head, Rasheed approached Khaleel again and asked him for more Rs 50 lakh more as loan.
The TOI report informs that Khaleel agreed to give the money, but wanted Rasheed to hand over the reins of the restaurant to him until his dues were cleared, to which Rasheed refused. Khaleel then started pressurising Rasheed to return the earlier loan of Rs 15 lakh. To get rid of Khaleel, Rasheed along with his two staff hatched the murder plan and on Sunday asked Khaleel to come near a function hall in Rajendranagar, after which they attacked him.
