The story in the Standard alleges that Monica, who was set to travel to Dubai for her birthday, had a huge sum of money she was going to spend but unfortunately the family never saw the money even after she was killed. Her relative told the Standard that:

Some of her close friends have conferred with us that Monica had some good money which she intended to use during her tour in Dubai. We suspect that the killers were after this cash, we hope and pray that the real truth shall come out and justice will be done.
