Also, we need to see what is stated in the FIR. The investigation has been launched, the body has been sent for post-mortem as per protocol, and we will take action as per the law.”

The police’s thorough investigation will determine the circumstances surrounding this heart-wrenching incident as the community grapples with the shocking loss of a young life.
