The girl, a resident of Sitapur, was preparing for the medical entrance examination while staying in Lucknow. She had gone with her friend Shubham Rai to attend a party on Sunday night at a flat in Celebrity Meadows Apartment in Sushant Golf City.

ADCP Singh further added that during interrogation, the two accused disclosed that around 11 pm, the girl was standing on the balcony at the back side of the flat, talking to somebody on the mobile when she suddenly fell. “When she fell down, her friend Shubham, along with his other friends, picked her up and took her to a private hospital, where she was pronounced dead. At around 12.30 am on Sunday night, Shubham informed the police of Sushant Golf City police station about the matter,” stated the officer.
