She was allegedly killed by the hotel owner identified as Abhijeet Singh. The police arrested the main accused Singh and two of his associates Om Prakash and Hemraj, however, they did not get success in finding the body of the deceased.

The accused was caught on a CCTV camera taking out the body from the hotel and keeping it in a BMW. Pahuja had come to celebrate New Year with the hotel owner. 

Gangster Sandeep Gadoli was infamous in the Delhi-NCR region. She was his girlfriend. Her new friend has been accused of her murder. Pahuja was allegedly murdered by her friend in his hotel room. The accused, along with his friends, took her body to another state and dumped it, the sources said.

The deceased was accused in a murder case, said the police. She came on bail from Mumbai jail in July 2023. In 2016, Divya was arrested after an encounter of gangster Sandeep Gadoli in a Mumbai hotel.

Motive behind the murder

Accused Abhijeet told the police during preliminary interrogation that Hotel City Point belongs to the accused which was given on lease. Pahuja had some obscene pictures of the accused and she used to blackmail him. She used to often take money from Singh for expenses and now wanted to extort a huge amount. Yesterday, the accused had come to Hotel City Point with her and he wanted to delete his obscene photos from her phone but Pahuja did not tell the password of the phone which prompted him to shoot dead Pahuja. Hemraj and Om Prakash, who worked as cleaning and reception workers in the hotel, kept the dead body in the accused's BMW. After this, the accused called his two other associates and gave them his car to dispose of the dead body.
