Soma’s mother was also staying with the family but Johny had sent her home on Friday. Johny’s friend Jose told The Times of India that the family was facing financial problems and Johny was troubled over it.

“Just a week ago, Johny had told me about the need for money he has to give to a person whose daughter was about to get married. In between, he also faced issues with the property of his wife at Thalakottukkara near Kecheri. Johny had taken a loan pledging the property following which he was having problems with his in-laws,” Jose told ToI.

He also said that Johny had taken around Rs 30 lakhs loan from KSFE.
