During an interrogation, Sahu told the police that she had been preparing for the UPSC for some years. She had been facing marital problems after which she took a divorce. "She had filed several complaints against her husband but no action was taken. While preparing for the UPSC, she developed an antipathy towards the women officers.

When TOI tried to check if the accounts were still active, they could not be opened. Two mobile phones and a tablet have been seized from her.
