The girl’s are brought up in such way that they have to tolerate all the pain within and not share anything. Which will create problem in their in-laws house .But there is limit for everything . The family had to see this day because of their greed and carelessness. The precious life is lost.

When she had complained about the matter to her parents why didn’t they lodge a complaint to the police, At least they wouldn’t have got to see this day?
