The three kids, of which two were brother-sister, accompanied by another friend all in age group of 5-7 years, were out on field playing around 11:30am. After around an hour, they decided to enter into an adjacent garage which had capacity to place around 100 cars. The kids entered into the garage through a compound wall in which there was 25 foot wide opening. After entering into garage, the three kids entered the car which was unlocked. Once inside, though, the children did not know how to open its doors. Their bodies were found 13 hours later, in the wee hours of Thursday. There were marks on the dusty windowpanes, indicating that they had unsuccessfully struggled to break them open, investigating police officers told.
The victim's family demanded action against the godown's owner saying if the compound wall had been properly constructed and if the car had been locked, the tragedy would have been averted. The local Narpoli police have seized the car and registered a case against Sumit Malhotra, director of the car dealership, Global Gallery Agency Pvt Ltd, and Amit Sakpal, delivery checking executive in charge of managing the godown. Sakpal was arrested on Thursday.

The three kids are named Rubi Maji (5), her brother Dilip Maji (7) and their friend Raj Soni (6). M K Bhosale, deputy commissioner of police, Thane Zone 4, said, "We registered a case against the godown's owner as primary investigations clearly show that the incident occurred due to the negligence of the godown owner. He had left an opening in its compound wall." He further said the owner employed just two security guards for the rather large godown and that the guards kept a watch only at the front gate.
