So, they had hatched a criminal conspiracy to eliminate Dogra. They also hatched conspiracy with Gourav Sharma, Amrish Khajuria alias Max, Raj Kumar alias Raju (deceased now) and Mohan Singh alias Mohna for commission for eliminating the deceased, as such on 10.01.2008, they with common criminal intention planned to commit murder of Ajit Singh Dogra.
