Ramneek Pantal, a wedding planner, says, “I knew her. We ran into each other at many parties. We often interacted on social media. She was always jovial. I was shocked to hear that she killed herself.”

Apparently, Priyanka’s husband didn’t approve of her social life. “She was the life of parties and had a lot of male friends. And that made her husband uncomfortable. After they started dating, he told me that he didn’t want his girlfriend to work. I was surprised,” says Zaki.

A close friend of Nitin, who also owns a pub, says, “Nitin is a nice guy. I am shocked to know that he is being blamed for the incident.”
