“After coming to Mumbai, my daughter was not in a live-in relationship, Rahul was staying with us. He conspired, separates our daughter from us, and then started staying at her place, calling it a live-in relation. He conspired, created pressure on my daughter and killed her”, she added.

During the prayer meet, when singer Harshdeep Kaur sang one of Pratyusha’s favourite songs “Jo Bheji Thi Dua”, her mother burst into tears. 

She cried loudly and said: “No one has an idea of the pain a mother goes through, my daughter whom I brought back home as baby, and later as a body... a dead body from hospital... how will I live my life with this memory? How? Who will call me ‘Ma’?”
