An airline employee who is also a freelance model, had travelled from Dubai to Bengaluru to visit her partner passed away suddenly after falling from an apartment on Saturday. Archana Dhiman has been named as the deceased.

Archana's mother accused boyfriend of killing her
Archana's mother has accused her daughter’s boyfriend Adesh, 26, of killing her. Based on the mother’s complaint, the police registered an FIR and took Adesh into custody.
On the night of the incident, both had gone for a late-night movie and later had dinner and consumed alcohol. According to Adesh, Archana was pacing up and down the balcony and she slipped and fell off the railing. She was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was declared brought dead.
According to police, evidence suggests that the couple had frequent fights and Archana’s parents were aware of this.
She may have been forced off the balcony
Archana had recently visited him in Koramangala, according to the police. She may have been forced off the balcony during an argument between the two, according to speculation.
Police in Koramangala are presently reviewing the surveillance video. They said that Archana fell from a building's fourth floor in Koramangala. On Friday night, at about midnight, the incident happened.
Police probe reveals she was pushed
According to the police, both met through a dating app and fell in love. "For the last three months, the deceased Archana was forcing her boyfriend Adesh to marry her. But, the accused did not show any interest and postponed it by giving various reasons," police said.
The deceased air hostess, who came to Bengaluru from Dubai, had tough talks with him on marriage. She had told him about her family looking out for alliances. This had led to arguments between them and the victim, Archana had warned him of initiating legal action against him.
The police investigations have shown that the accused Adesh, enraged by this, allegedly pushed her off from his apartment and killed her. Police said that after killing her, the accused had called the victim's father and maintained that his daughter fell off from the building in an inebriated state. He had also dialed police and informed them about the incident.
The police have arrested the accused following a complaint by the parents of the deceased air hostess. They suspected the role of the accused boyfriend and even charged that he had pushed her off from the building.
