Sources informed of the developments confirmed "The woman has been identified as Rani, an employee at a tailoring shop in Mukkom, where the NIT campus is located”. Furthermore several photos of Jolly and Rani had been found in the former's phone gallery, while being searched by the police and from her call records, it is believed that Jolly had spoken to Rani the most, among everybody else.
