In - Law's Harrassment
A wife commits suicide
Radhakrishnan, 38, was late married. He was self-employed in a Tamil Nadu town as a goods auto-rikshaw driver. He left his wife at home along with mother and three sisters and came home occasionally.
The home administration was controlled by his elder sister with over-age for marriage. She in connivance with all others at home made the newly-wed sister-in-law a slave in all respects. She was compelled to do all the house chores on the order of his elder sister and others. The things did not end there. She was isolated and humiliated in all respects and she chewed all this silently. Rather, she was forced to keep silent. She was not permitted to talk to neighbours or relatives.
One day she went to her parental house to attend to a temple festival there. She committed suicide by consuming poison. She had kept a suicide note wherein she narrated the harsh treatment she was thrust upon and named her sister-in-laws in it.
The suicide earned wide publicity as news papers and channels gave good coverage.
Her in-laws are facing trial in the court. Back at village they are facing sterner trial by way of isolation by one and all.
