In their official release, Sabita’s relatives said, “Sabita was our daughter. Our angel. Her life, which we hoped would be long, was cut tragically short. She has been ripped away from those who loved her so very dearly. We can only pray that lessons will be learned and that somehow, there will come a day when girls and women are safe. She inspired us every day of her precious 19 years of life.
Her whole life was ahead of her, a life where her radiant smile and incredible heart could only spread warmth and kindness. Sabita was pure and did not see bad in anyone. We will never ever stop loving our beautiful, irreplaceable Sabita. The girl that was an angel upon the earth is now an angel in heaven.”
