Bhavini's relatives have asked to be left alone at this difficult time to grieve and try to make sense of what has happened to their daughter," he said.Officers were called to a property on Moores Road in Leicester by the East Midlands Ambulance Service on Monday following a report that a woman had been seriously injured inside the property. Pravin was pronounced dead at the scene and a murder investigation was launched.A post-mortem examination concluded the victim died as a result of stab wounds. Enquiries into the circumstances surrounding the death are continuing and officers have been in the area of the incident, carrying out house-to-house enquiries and collecting CCTV as they pieced together the moments leading up to the death.Pravin's family issued a statement in tribute of their "beautiful, kind and sweet" girl and said their world had been ripped apart by the killing.The statement read: "As a family, we could never have imagined that one day we would be issuing a tribute to Bhavini under such circumstances. Our world has been ripped apart by her death and we can't believe she has gone. A light has gone out in our lives."Bhavini was a devoted daughter and sister, loved by all who knew her. She was beautiful, kind and sweet. Our lives will never be the same without her. All we can hope for is Bhavini to be at peace and for our request for privacy to be respected."
