Aniket said that he tried to reason with Karan and asked him to delete the photos but Karan refused. Aniket called Karan to the murrum pit to once again reason with him and when the latter refused, Aniket hit Karan with a stone on his head killing him off the spot and then dumped the body in the pit.
