Cop speak
Senior Inspector Sanjay Satav in-charge of Pune railway police station said, "The incident took place around 6.30 am on Tuesday. We suspect the suicide is an outfall of a love relationship. We identified the couple based on Tiwari’s mobile handset. Tiwari’s full name is yet to be traced while the girl’s father, who runs a tourist business, has identified the body. She was pursuing her first year in Bachelor in Computer Application (BCA) in Chinchwad based college."

Inspector Vijaykumar Palsule, in-charge of Nigdi police station, said, "Rajani’s parents had approached us on Monday late night and alerted us that their girl went missing since 6 pm. But they did not provide us pictures or any documents and they suspected that their daughter might be with Tiwari. We were probing the case by then this unfortunate incident happened."
