Aditi was among the girls who were participating in a zip-lining class in the morning. The incident occurred around 10.30am. The girls were standing on the rooftop. They were descending from the zip-line one by one. Aditi was also on the rooftop watching one of the girls descending when she suddenly lost balance. Other girls started screaming and shouting as they watched her falling down. According to reports, she had completed her round and was simply helping other girls put harness on. Aditi was second year BSc student at ICG. Aditi's father, Sunil Sanghi, is reportedly associated with a mountaineering academy in Jaipur and provides training in several colleges. The daughter also used to assist him with the job. She would accompany him during practice sessions. A girl, Muksan Agrawal, told The PinkCity Post that she had underwent training with Aditi last year.

"She was already a talented mountaineering professional who had trained under the supervision of her father. I enjoyed every moment when she was teaching me at ICG," said Muskan. A video showing the girl falling from the rooftop has gone viral on social media. The 16-year-old girl was a resident of Bapu Nagar in Jaipur. Nets were not being used when the training was being imparted to the girls, the students said, blaming this for the tragedy. “We are investigating as to what caused the accident, but prima-facie it has come up that she lost balance and fell. We have not come across any damaged railing; however, an investigation is still going on,” said the officer.
