Police tried to learn about her family but as she was reportedly suffering from dementia, she could not furnish any information like the names of family members or her address. Police took her to Kusumbai Motichand Mahila Sevagram on Karve Road.
Recently, Sevagram told the police to shift her. A police team led by inspector Amol Dhas of Sahkarnagar police started searching for her family again. Police could finally learn she was from Khadki Khandala village. Sahkarnagar police found that the village was in Ahmednagar district.
