On the other hand, the family members were searching whereabouts of her over the nearby areas till late night and finally lodged a missing report to the Khadki police station around 11:30pm on the same night. As a reply to the missing report lodged by the family, the concerned police informed about having a death body and further informed the family to visit the morgue of Sassoon hospital to identify the death body. The parents of the deceased who were in Manipur rushed to Pune by 11:30pm of Saturday, the 11th January 2020 and established the identity of their daughter.
