There is reason to believe that Sippy’s killer was accompanied by a woman at the time of the murder. The said woman is also being given a chance to come forward and contact us if she is innocent. Otherwise it will be presumed that she was a party to the offense.”

Though this is an old case and the earlier attempts to uncover the real events of the crime were not successful, the CBI kept on trying to collect the evidence. Reducing police remand at this stage will make the investigation fail at the initial stage itself.
