Geetanjali and Ravneet, both from Panchkula, got married in 2007 and they had two daughters. Following her murder, Geetanjali’s family had alleged that Ravneet’s family had started harassing Geetanjali after the birth of the couple’s first daughter and things worsened after their second girl child was born. Geetanjali’s brother Pradeep Aggarwal and father Om Prakash, who live in Panchkula, had also demanded a narco test on Ravneet, saying the mystery behind the woman’s death needed to be uncovered. Her brother had alleged that it was a case of murder since the post -mortem report had pointed to three gun-shot injuries and one head injury on her body.
