Last week, a confident Delhi Police—satisfied with Sharma's interrogation—decided not to press for the extension of his police remand before a city court. Subsequently, he was remanded to two weeks judicial custody at Delhi's Tihar jail. The police told the court that Sharma had confessed to the crime and that he had given vital leads which would support the chargesheet in the murder case.

This is the police side of the story. And it is this official version that has added to the confusion over the actual progress made in the case. In fact, the open-ended statements made by the Delhi Police and the unconfirmed, often contradictory media leaks made during and after Sharma's police custody leave enough room for various interpretations. It doesn't come as a surprise then that Sharma's counsel have described the police statements about his confession as "farcical".
