The girl’s family was against the relationship on the ground that our financial status did not match. They used to threaten to kill my son. They had attacked him last year and had tore off his nails, following which we sent him to Odisha to work.
He had come to attend my daughter’s marriage on July 8 and had stayed back. He was our only son and we always used to tell him to stay away from love.
