As the youth continued to trouble the woman, her family complained to the police. When he was summoned by the police, he assured them that he would not trouble her anymore. Later, Arun got married to another woman. And Suryagayathri also got married to another man. Following a tiff with her husband, Suryagayathri had been staying with her parents for the past six months.
