The Kempegowda International Airport traffic police were not convinced with the story and became suspicious of the incident by the looks of the rented car as it did not look like an accident. The police checked the car GPS from the rental company and found that the timings given by Singh did not match with the incident. Experts were also called in by the police who confirmed that it was not a collision. The police detained Singh and on interrogation, he confessed the crime.
