Bengaluru, Feb 17: In a tragic incident that occurred in the city, a singer who sang songs for several Kannada movies killed herself unable to bear the torture for dowry by her in-laws.
Sushmita (26) is the singer who allegedly committed suicide. It is said that her husband's family was continuously torturing her for dowry. Before dying, she has sent a message on WhatsApp to her mother and brother which says, "Mom, forgive me. I am getting the punishment for the mistake which I have done. My husband’s aunt used to torture me. She used to tell me to get out of the house every now and then. Do not leave them.

"Sharath, Vaidehi and Geetha are directly responsible for my death. However much I pleaded, their hearts and minds did not melt. I did not want to die at their house. Right from the day of marriage this was going on. I did not share with anyone. Please cremate or bury me in our native place. Let my brother to my final rites. Do not leave my in-laws. Otherwise my soul will not get peace. Miss you mom. My brother Sachin is there for you. Look after him nicely. Once again I ask forgiveness from you."
Sushmita had married Sharath of Kanakapura one and a half years ago. Her husband was working as a manager in a private company. Sushimita was living in her husband's house in Kumaraswamy Layout of the city. She had come to her parents’ house in Nagarabhavi on the night of Sunday. She has sent the message before dying to her mother in English. However, as the mother does not know English she did not react. When her brother Sachin saw the message on mother's mobile the incident has come to light.
