The woman was attacked on the road, but none of the passersby came forward to her rescue. She died on the spot. Subsequently, police took her body to the mortuary of the local hospital.

Against women working in the family
On interrogation, family members and neighbours of the woman said that her father-in-law Maamraj was furious with her as she worked in a factory.
According to the woman’s family, the accused Maamraj would often say that women in Rajput families should not go out to work as this was against Rajput pride.
