The police had slapped murder charge against the CJM. Her family had accused her in-laws of harassing her for dowry.

The family alleged the harassment started from the birth of the couple's first daughter and things worsened after their second girl child was born.

Geetanjali got married to Garg in 2007 and they have two daughters aged around four and three years.

Her brother has alleged that it is a case of murder since as per the post mortem report, there are three gun-shot injuries and one head injury on her body. After the incident, a Special Investigation Team was formed to probe the death.
