In Jabalpur, Ashwini's mother, Mamata, mourns the daughter she was supposed to send off to her wedding. "We were supposed to send her off in a palanquin (to the groom's house) after her marriage (in future), but now we were forced to carry her body on a bier," Ashwini's inconsolable mother Mamata Costa told PTI in Jabalpur after performing her last rites.

"We demand justice," she said, criticising lax parenting of the minor boy. "The minor boy and his parents should get stringent punishment. They have not raised him properly...They should have not given him the car," she said.

She remembered Ashwini as being a "very talented girl". "She was one among a million. She had so many dreams and now everything is left here only," her mother said.

The Juvenile Justice Board revoked the boy's bail, remanding him to custody until June 5. Police commissioner Amitesh Kumar confirmed the development in the case saying, "We had filed in a review application before the Juvenile Justice Board, praying that the accused be tried as an adult and that he be sent to a remand home."
