Ashwini’s father Suresh Kostha, a resident of Sakar Hills of Jabalpur, said, “She was the most loved child of our house. She was in Pune for the past two years. In January, she had come to Jabalpur to celebrate her 25th birthday. I didn’t know that it was our last meeting with her.”

“She informed us that she was going to meet her friends. Later, we came to know about the accident”, he added.

Kostha expressed his anguish over the minor’s early release by the juvenile court.

“I am shocked and extremely upset that the accused was released so easily by the juvenile court. He was drunk and driving a car, so how could he be treated as a juvenile. He should be treated as an adult and punished,” he said.

Anish’s family also expressed similar sentiments, asking for justice.

Anish’s parents, hailing from Rajasthan’s Umaria, couldn’t speak after their child’s cremation but his paternal aunt Varsha Awadhiya, who brought the body to Umaria, said, “We lost Anish, and nothing can bring him back but the only thing we want is justice. The accused and his father should not be spared”, she said.
