In a fresh development in the alleged suicide by model Viveka Babajee, forensic experts have detected DNA samples under her nails, prompting police to take blood and DNA profiles of her two friends, including an ex- boyfriend, who are under the scanner since the June incident.

The 37-year-old former Miss Mauritius had on June 25 allegedly committed suicide, police said. Her friend Gautam Vora and ex-boyfriend Kartik Jobanputra were questioned. But the probe did not make much headway.

“The forensic experts have traced DNA samples under the model’s nails. We are trying to match the samples with Vora and Jobanputra’s profiles. For this, we have taken the DNA as well as blood samples of both of them,” a police official said.
