The police started action as soon as the information about the missing girl went viral on social media. According to the police, the main arrested accused is the son of BJP leader Vinod Arya from Haridwar. Vinod Arya is on the post of minister in the state government. However, the state government has not given him any ministry.

Uttarakhand Police Chief Ashok Kumar issued a statement regarding the incident. He said that the place where this resort is located, there is no local police. The patwari registers a case regarding criminal incidents in that area. In this case too, he has registered a case regarding the disappearance of the girl. This FIR was lodged by the owner of the resort itself. This resort is about 10 kms from Rishikesh city.

Yesterday, the DM transferred this matter to us, and we made an arrest in the matter within 24 hours. The owner of the resort is the main accused in this whole case. Along with him, two other employees of the resort have also been made accused. Right now our team is busy in solving this matter, we are probing many angles.

On Friday, when the police arrested the accused in this case, the local people who were protesting against the incident attacked the accused. The policemen present there somehow saved the accused from that crowd and took them with them.
