Earlier, SP Singh had said that Sai along with his driver Burdhan killed Kalpana and her daughter with a blunt iron-rod like object and disposed their bodies. They also allegedly made all attempts to ensure that the bodies could not be identified by crushing them under an SUV multiple times, said Singh.
