As per the orders of the DGP, City Commissioner of Police Shailesh Kumar Yadav has issued instructions to investigating officer KPS Jeyachandran, ACP, CCRB, to hand over the CD file of the case to the investigating officer of CB-CID for further investigations.

He then left for Chennai to file the report and urged the DGP to transfer the case to CB-CID.

Ramajayam was allegedly kidnapped on March 28 and tortured for a few hours before he was murdered by a gang. A special team was formed to investigate the case. The team conducted inquiry with the persons associated with Ramajayam and his family. Each day around 50 persons were interrogated.
