Neha was murdered on the night of 26 December in Nawabganj, Kanpur by her lover Shahnawaz and his four accomplices. Her body was thrown on the Nawabganj-Mainawati road. Investigators found that Shahnawaz was already married to another woman, and he had plotted Neha’s murder to end the relationship.
