A report in the Indian Express quotes an officer from the Powai police station as having stated that Waghmare had an argument with her mother-in-law, following which she bought a bottle of rat poison.

The woman, who works at a mall in Powai, then gave her sons a soft drink laced with the rat poison and consumed some herself. The police also found that the woman's husband and mother-in-law would harass her mentally and physically on a regular basis.
