The decision of cancelling the marriage angered Payal so much that she along with her Pune-based friend Rutuja started threatening Chetan. The women allegedly told Chetan that they would file a police complaint to defame him. Fed up with the threats, Chetan committed suicide. Bajaj Nagar Police, on a complaint by Chetan’s father, has registered a case and booked the women under section 306 and 34 of the IPC.
