According to The Indian Express, inconsistencies at the crime scene led the police to rule out the possibility that it was an accident.

Officers discovered that the front door and kitchen window from where the child had fallen were both shut.

Kurar Police Station senior inspector Balasaheb Salunkhe said, "The manner in which the girl's body was found also suggested that she was thrown out."

After 13 hours of questioning by the police, the grandmother finally confessed to the crime

On Saturday morning while everyone was asleep, the woman picked up the child, hurled her out of the window, closed it, and went back to bed.

Other family members have said that the woman was never fond of her granddaughter.

Astro Awani reported that she often had heated arguments with the child's mother and would be irritated when the girl played at her home.
