The deceased's sister Shweta Tiwari said, "This is not a suicide. I knew my sister well. It's a case of murder that needs to be investigated. I came to know from her friends that she was having some problems with her boyfriend. That can be the reason behind her death. I want the case to be transferred to the Crime Branch."

She further said, "Why would a woman commit suicide in a semi-nude condition? Both the families were aware of their relationship for the past five to six years. Once I had even seen her boyfriend hitting her." Vikram Deshmane, DCP, Zone 11, said, "We have registered a murder case against unknown people. Further investigation is on."
