Vaibhavi fiancé on people’s assumptions
Jay told ETimes, “There is a notion that you speed on road trips, but that was not the case. Our car was standing still and waiting for the truck to pass. I am not in a state to talk much, but I wanted to ensure that people don’t assume that we were not wearing seat belts or were speeding.”
For the unversed, Vaibhavi and Jay were planning to get married this December.
Vaibhavi Upadhyaya’s brother supported his statement:
Her brother Ankit Upadhyaya reacted to Jay’s statement and added, “She was always cautious and would never sit in a car without a seat belt. So, on a road trip, she would be extra cautious. The doctors also confirmed how there were seat belt marks around her neck. It is sad that we were thinking of planning her marriage, but now she is gone.”
After the tragic incident, Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai creator JD Majethia announced the news of her passing on his Twitter. He wrote, “Life is so unpredictable.
