The police summoned one of the persons from Chattisgarh to Ernakulam Central police station for questioning. The probing team had found out that the person frequently contacted the girl over phone and threatened her. He had also phoned Mishel the day she died.
Her relatives had ruled out the possibility of her committing suicide.

CCTV visuals recovered from a Church at Kaloor in the city showed the girl from Piravom coming out and reaching the main road after prayers last Sunday, police said. The footage also shows two men on a motorbike following Mishel.
The girl, pursuing her CA, was staying at a hostel in Ernakulam for her studies.
