According to the DCP, Naveen stated that Tillu Tajpuria, along with Naveen Bali, was the major conspirator, and he was also a part of the scheme and execution.

Naveen spent the majority of his time in Nepal after violating his parole, therefore his acquaintances referred to him as Nepali.

According to the plan, Naveen obtained the rifle and ammo through Tillu’s contact, which he then delivered to the assailants, and he also assisted them in entering the Rohini court grounds by dressing them in advocate clothes, according to police.
