The couple’s lawyer Prashant Patil said that the police have searched their house and recovered CCTV footage installed at their house. Patil said that they have been booked under Section 201 (destruction of evidence of crime) of the Indian Penal Code, which is a bailable offence and hence the couple should be sent to judicial custody.
