A day before taking the extreme step, she had shared in a Facebook video that she was cheated and was unable to trust anyone. In the video, she spoke about trust issues and and not having friends who can be of help.

A police official said was upset as she was out of money and work during the coronavirus-induced lockdown. She also felt cheated as a friend did not return her two-wheeler, he added.
