When a leading daily spoke to Taruni's friends, they learnt few strange and shocking truths. One of Taruni's friends informed the daily that before leaving for Nepal trip, Taruni hugged all her friends and said to them, "I'm meeting you guys for the last time." Though it was a light-hearted joke, according to her classmates, Taruni had "never hugged her friends or sent them goodbye messages before leaving for any of her earlier trips."
Taruni's best friend Tanushkha Pillai gave us one more shocking information about the deceased. Just before boarding the flight, she messaged Tanushkha, jokingly asking what would happen if the plane crashed. Taruni's friends believe that their best friend's death was destined to happen.
