In a three page suicide note to Sooraj she wrote, ““I was scared of getting pregnant but I gave you myself completely. The pain you have caused me every day has destroyed every bit of me, destroyed my soul and I aborted our baby when it hurt me deeply.”
Sooraj and his family have denied all charges. They claim that the note was not signed and did not address Sooraj.
