Lalmuni's relatives from Motihari district of India including her parents, brother and sister arrived Gaur on Sunday, following the unexpected and unnatural death of their beloved one.

The police have taken victim's father-in-law Rajendra Saha and mother-in-law Pramila Devi under control, following dubious circumstances with the case.RSS
