According to the police, the control room received information on the intervening night between December 25 and 26, which said that two individuals had snatched an SUV from a man identified as Jasbir, near the Leisure Valley Resort. 

Jasbir, a resident of the Jhajjar village, drove the car as a cab for a private firm. On the night of December 25, he went to drop an employee of the firm near the resort.
