According to police, Bahirathan (32) of Chennai and Sasidharan (23) of Trichy had come from Sri Lanka and settled in Tamil Nadu without any valid proof. They both were construction wage labourers.

On November 19, the two went to Uttar Pradesh from Chennai and from there to Nepal and later to Bangladesh with fake passports. From Bangladesh they flew down to Sri Lanka and from there to Dubai.
