One of Khushbu's relatives, Jethmal Botra, said, "Her friends said that when the firefighters found Khushbu, she was still breathing. We believe that if she were given timely treatment, she would have survived. Her friends said that they lost Khushbu in the ensuing chaos after the fire broke out. All of us in her family are shaken. This shouldn't have happened."
