Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has condemned the incident and demanded death penalty for the accused. Addressing a presser later, he said: “This can happen to anyone's daughter. No matter how influential, politically connected a convict is, he should be hanged."

The body was found without clothes and broken limbs, which has also led to suspicion that she was sexually assaulted and murdered. The police have so far maintained that the case appears to be a death by rash and negligent driving. The victim's family has alleged that she was sexually abused. “It was not at all an accident. What sort of accident is this when there was not even a single cloth on my daughter’s body. We want a complete investigation,” her mother, Rekha Devi, said.

Police said that the woman’s leg got trapped in one of the wheels of the car when it hit her scooty. “As a result, she was dragged for around seven kilometres,” a police official said. The car was traced to its owner’s house in Rohini.
