Kuldeep was arrested by the police form a railway station in Delhi.
According to Nilambari Jagadale, the senior superintendent of the Chandigarh Police, 29-year-old Manpreet Kaur, and 26-year-old Rajwant Kaur were living in Mohali, Chandigarh while they were working at a chemical factory in Zirakpur.

Preliminary investigations revealed that Manpreet Kaur and Kuldeep were in a relationship for 9 years, but the 2 broke up earlier this year.

Manpreet woke up and realized that someone broke inside their house.
It is reported that Manpreet started to scold Kuldeep and out of anger, her ex-lover used a pair of scissors to attack her.
Rajwant, the sister of Manpreet, woke up and saw her sister.
Kuldeep stabbed and killed Rajwant as well.
Kuldeep ran away from the room after killing the 2 sisters.

The parents then alerted the owner of their accommodation, and upon checking, the owner found the 2 sisters dead inside their room.
The police were called.
A CCTV installed in the area showed Kuldeep running away from the accommodation building of the 2 sisters.
His name was also mentioned during the preliminary investigations.
