“She was doing her MTech through correspondence and was managing home apart from working. Fed up with the torture, she resorted to the extreme step,” said Manjunath.

 â€śWith a lot of trust in Prathap I married him, but he is not trustworthy. I requested my mother-in-law to be friendly, but no use. I have decided to commit suicide,” says her death note.
