“I will disclose everything after the condolence meeting. Rajeev, who is our relative and had been the OSD (Officer on Special Duty) to my husband ND Tiwari, has been in our service for the last 40 years. Apoorva used to hate Rajeev’s wife because Sidharth wanted to give a share of his property to Rajeev’s son,” she added.
