Agarwal's family lawyer Abhijit Bhattacharjee told media persons that a post-mortem report had revealed that Agarwal was burnt alive after she was attacked by Singhal. The 13 injury marks found on her body turned imperative in dismissing the case as a suicide, PTI reported.
While many reports state that Singhal was Agarwal's boyfriend, a relative of the victim dismissed the claims.
The relative told PTI that it was a one-sided affair. Further, Bhattacharjee told reporters that Singhal's motive for the crime was proven by document wherein Agarwal said, "My answer is no and always is no." He did not clarify on what sort of a document it was.
At the time of her death, Agarwal was pursuing her under-graduation in commerce from the KC Das Commerce College in Guwahati. Singhal was also a student at the same college. She was the Class-XII topper in the commerce stream in 2015.
