Sansriti was to get married in February and the family was planning a get-together in Bangalore where her elder sister Pallavi, also an engineer, lives. "Sansriti was supposed to leave for Bangalore on October 25 with her parents. They wanted her to meet an engineer with whom she was about to get married in February next year," said Mohini Prasad, Sansriti's aunt.
"Her elder sister gave birth to a girl six months ago. Sansriti was excited about meeting her in Bangalore," said Shilpi, Sansriti's roommate.

Sansriti had taken leave but her seniors called her back on Friday as there was a staff crunch.
