The mother of the victim in the horrific Kanjhawala tragedy in the national capital on Wednesday disputed allegations made by deceased Anjali’s ‘friend’ Nidhi and claimed that she “might be involved” in this “well thought-out conspiracy”.

Rekha, the deceased’s mother, said that she does not know Nidhi who claimed to be Anjali’s friend on Tuesday. “She was in a drunken state but insisted on driving the two-wheeler. After being hit by the car, she came under the car, and got dragged with it. I was scared and ran away and returned home, didn’t tell anything to anyone. It is the fault of the girl who was driving in an inebriated state. I insisted to her so much that don’t drive, I am conscious, let me drive. She didn’t believe me and believed herself,” Nidhi had claimed before the media yesterday.

Refuting her claims, Anjali’s mother said that she would not believe her remarks as her daughter “never used to drink”.

Speaking to ANI, Rekha questioned how Nidhi left the spot of the accident if she was Anjali’s friend and termed the incident a “well thought-out conspiracy”.

“Nidhi is saying all the wrong things. If Nidhi was my daughter’s friend, then how did she leave her alone? This is a well thought-out conspiracy, Nidhi might be involved in this. There should be an investigation,” she said.

“I don’t know Nidhi, I have never seen her. Anjali never used to drink, she never came home in an inebriated state, and we don’t believe whatever claims Nidhi made,” Rekha added.
The mother demanded punishment for the accused who have been arrested.
“The 5 men should be punished,” she said.

Meanwhile, Anjali’s maternal uncle, Prem, felt Nidhi was involved in the case and sought a CBI investigation.

“Nidhi and her family should have informed the police about the incident. Nidhi should be questioned. She is also involved. We demand CBI enquiry in the case, it isn’t a small case, it’s a painful incident,” he said.

Nirbhaya’s mother, Asha Devi, paid a visit to the 20-year-old girl’s family earlier today. She also stated that she does not agree with Nidhi’s comments.

“I request authorities to investigate the case & support the family financially. A job should be given to the family member as soon as possible. I do not level allegations on anyone but I do not support what that girl (Nidhi) has said in her statement,” Asha Devi said.

Special CP of Delhi Police Shalini Singh said that the inquiry into the incident is underway and the police are analysing every perspective.

“The enquiry is underway into the incident, we are analysing every perspective. Once that’s done we’ll submit the report to the union ministry of home affairs,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Delhi Police has found CCTV footage in which the deceased woman Anjali and her friend, identified by police as Nidhi, were seen coming out of a hotel at around 1.30 am on January 1.

The hotel manager has revealed that the deceased woman Anjali and her friend, identified by police as Nidhi, had a fight in the hotel after which they left the hotel on a scooty.
