On November 2, four bodies were discovered approximately 100 kilometres downstream in the Tohana Canal, Haryana. Due to the advanced state of decomposition, a family member was summoned to identify Lalnunthiangi's body, which was confirmed at 11 p.m. on Thursday.

The identities of the other three bodies have yet to be ascertained, but they are believed to be Lalnunthiangi's non-Mizo friends who accompanied her on the outing and are suspected to have drowned. Lalnunthiangi's body is scheduled for a post-mortem examination this evening. The mysterious circumstances leading to her death remain unknown.
