Even, we are investigating the case but we began to probe the case a day after she committed suicide. However, the police went ahead with their investigation and arrested all the three accused.”
The SP said the girl had named the three stalkers as Raja, Shivam and Rahul in her suicide note. “We have sent all the accused in judicial custody. Also, police have detained one of the accused’s mother whose name was taken by the deceased,” he added.
