The next day (Wednesday), the elderly woman dashed Khanna to Sion hospital, where she informed medics that he had collapsed.Khanna’s post-mortem examination established “physical trauma” to his body “by fall, impact or attack” as the reason for his death.
Following this, the hospital informed the police about Khanna’s death. The police picked up Pal who then confessed to having committed the crime.
According to the police, the elderly woman, along with her daughter from her first marriage, had shifted from Punjab to Mumbai following the 1984 riots. She came in contact with Khanna who gave her a place to live. The two stayed together. A daughter was born out of their relationship.
