In an interview, Sippy’s mother said,

    I cannot forget him even for a moment and will fight for justice till I am alive. On the day she was murdered, Sippy told me that Kalyani wanted to meet her. Since the murder we are saying that he is involved in the murder of my son, because we rejected his marriage proposal. He killed her.”

  • Sippy’s brother Jasman Preet while talking to reporters said,

    My late grandfather, Justice SS Sidhu, was a former judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court and my late father, IPS Sidhu, was the Additional Advocate General of Punjab. We had close ties with Kalyani’s family and she knew Sippy since childhood. But we turned down his marriage proposal because of his relationship with others. We had clearly told this to his family, but we could never have imagined that this would kill Sippy.”

    he adds,

    Justice Sabina was the sitting judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court when the murder took place. The police was hesitant to even interrogate Kalyani. On our representation, he was transferred to Rajasthan in 2016 and things started moving forward. But his arrest has now rekindled our hopes that Sippy’s killers will not escape.”
