A report suggested that Saumya had attended a party that night after which she did not go home. When some workers looked for her, they found her body.
She had returned to the studio from an overnight party at around 7 AM that day. After she did not come out till late in the evening, some workers who were on the ground floor of the studio went upstairs and found her body at around 10:15 PM. They immediately rushed her to hospital where she was declared dead on 3 February.
Bhonsle said, “She was taken to a hospital where she was declared dead.”
Although the police are calling it a suicide, the needle of suspicion is turning towards them as the body was found in Mika Singh’s studio.
