According to the sources, Anjali traveled to Mexico on the 18th October 2021 to celebrate her 30th event and was shot dead at a restaurant in a firing that happened between the two groups. This sudden demise of the female has left everyone in utter remorse.
What Happened At the Restaurant?
The incident took place at 10:30 pm on the 18th October, at the terrace of the LA Malquerida Restaurant, Tulum, Mexico. If the reports are to be believed, Anjali and four other foreign tourists were dining on the terrace of the restaurant, when four men armed with assault rifles started firing at the adjoining table.
The bullets so fired hit the foreigners. Anjali, along with a German woman, was killed on the spot, while three other people from Netherlands and Germany, were left wounded. They are currently being treated at the hospice for their injuries. The other deceased woman has been identified as Jennifer Henzold.
Soon after the incident occurred, authorities pointed to a confrontation between the culprits, recognized as two rival groups that operate drug sales in the area. Mexico, as it is, is touted as the hub of drug trading and trafficking.
As soon as the news reached the family members of the deceased, they broke into tears and still cannot come to terms with the fact with the sudden demise of their beloved daughter.
