During interrogation Tiwari said that he along with Shetty (also a resident of Rewa district, MP) and another from Andhra Pradesh used to work as daily wage workers at Khalsa Hotel. As Shankar had no family, he was staying in the restaurant itself for the past four years. The restaurateur, Jaspalsingh Gurumeetsingh Bagal also allowed them to stay with Shankar in Khalsa Hotel.
