Hours after recovery of her body, police arrested her
fiance Ravi Mishra (27) in connection with her murder.
Police claimed that Mishra, who had been in a
relationship with Jaiswal for the last three years and was
supposed to marry her on Monday, killed her at her apartment
on Wednesday as he did not want to tie the nuptial knot.

Jaiswal had not been answering her phone for the last
two days. Her parents, who arrived this morning from Kanpur,
discovered her lying dead in her room with injuries on her
head and feet after they came inside by breaking open the
door, police said.

Mishra, who was detained for questioning on suspicion,
confessed to the crime and revealed that he had visited
Jaiswal`s apartment on Wednesday evening when the incident
took place, a senior police officer claimed.

"The duo had an altercation over the issue of their
marriage as Mishra insisted that he did not want to marry her.
The verbal dual between them turned physical and Mishra hit
her with some blunt object, killing her on the spot. He then
silently left the place locking the doors from outside," he
added.

The cause of the death is yet to be ascertained and the
body was sent for post mortem. A case of murder has been
registered against Mishra, police said.
Mishra, who hails from Bihar, was employed in a private
company in Gurgaon.
