DIG BC pointed that the sniffer dog had also hinted toward Lok Bahadur's house despite the continuous rainfall making sniffing les effective.
SP with the federal police office in Dharan Bhim Dahal, who led investigations, said the fact that the spot where Tej Bahadur's body was found was not visible from the spot where Lok Bahadur claimed he first saw the body also brought him under suspicion.

Lok Bahadur, who felt Tej Bahadur had repeatedly humiliated him, then grabbed a club from among the pile of firewood kept at the house and hit Tej Bahadur.
Tej Bahadur's wife Man Maya and daughter-in-law Ranjana came out on hearing Tej Bahadur cry for help. Lok Bahadur chased them and murdered them. He then murdered the kids Dipak and Goma who came out of the house on hearing the women's cry for help.
He finally went inside the house and killed Tej Bahadur's mother Parvata. He spared Tej Bahadur's father Baudha Man Karki, 90, who cannot see and hear much, according to the police.
