The Vishwagora Banjara Seva Sangh and her husband have refused to touch the deceased's body till a murder case is registered against the officials concerned and action is initiated.

The deceased has been identified as Devibai Ram Pawar, a resident of Devkar Park. She is survived by her husband Tulsiram Pawar. Sources said the incident took place when a PCMC team arrived to take action against unauthorised houses. Devibai was rushed to Aundh Hospital. However, she succumbed to her injuries.
