“Mahesh and Jagdish Esare, brothers of Roshni told Rajesh that, they should take her to hospital as it’s a procedure before taking any dead body out of city,” said an official from Rafi Ahmed Kidwai Marg police station. “Though Rajesh was resisting the move, Roshni’s brother didn’t paid any heed and took her to KEM Hospital” he added.
