According to reports, Arif had gone to meet Shivani at her salon, ‘Touch and Care’ on June 26th, the day Shivani was murdered. Shivani had also told her sister, Shweta, on the phone that Arif had come to meet her in the salon and she was talking to him.

However, her dead body was found hidden in her own salon two days later.

Shivani’s mother Geeta, confirmed that Arif was harassing Shivani for the last three years.
