They had received gifts from relatives and acquaintances, including Salma’s elder sister’s ex-boyfriend. In association with the case, Raju Patel and his helper Manoj have been arrested.
Latesh Gavit of Mindhabari village reportedly married a girl from Gangapur village in Navsari district’s Vansda taluka.

The tragedy also harmed Latesh’s nephew, Jian, who is three years old. Both were transported to the Navsari government hospital for treatment.
The bride’s parents informed the Gavit family that Raju Patel, a villager of Koyamba, had presented the toy to the bride. He had an affair with the bride’s elder sister Jagruti and they were dating until recently.

Surat Range Inspector General of Police, Dr. S Rajkumar Pandian stated, that there have been claims of a bomb in a gift like a teddy bear near the Mindhabari area in Vansada.
