According to Adithi’s father, his daughter was forced to kill herself due to her father-in-law’s ill-treatment. Based on his fresh complaint, Chengannur police have initiated an investigation. The video reportedly is about the ordeal she underwent. In the video, Adithi alleges that timely treatment was not given for both Sooryan and her mother.
