Deepak was a fan of Pataal Lok and Asur web series and one day before executing the crime he with his wife had watched one of the web series. Deepak was inspired by a character Hathoda Tyagi in Web series Pataal Lok therefore he had executed all the murders by attacking them with a hammer,” revealed Vanan.
