Below is the screenshot taken from Priya Vedi’s Facebook profile which itself is enough to realize in how much pain she was.
As stated by a senior official, “She was lying in a pool of blood with her wrist vein slashed. The drip attached to her wrist indicated she injected poison but only the postmortem report will confirm what the drip was about.”
According to Vijay Verma who is also a doctor and Priya’s elder brother, “The couple allegedly had a fight on Friday. We got a call from her in-laws asking us to come to Delhi. They didn’t tell us the reason. On Saturday, Priya called each one of us between 12.30 and 1.30pm. She was crying and saying she was fed-up.”
Whereas Lokesh, a bank employee and her younger brother maintained, “Priya kept quite about her husband because of social taboos but she was quite supportive. Her in-laws were torturing her to get a divorce but she wanted to accept him the way he was.”
Her family alleged Priya being overdosed on sleeping pills by her husband. Her parents have given their statements to the magistrate and inquiry is commenced.
