The Atam Nagar police filed a case under Section 174 of the CrPC. She lived in a room on the third floor of the factory, where she and her husband used to work.
Ashok Kumar, a relative of the victim, stated that her husband Dalip Sahni eloped with a woman who used to work in the same factory two days ago. Following this incident, the victim had been under mental stress.
