    How could you write that in – laws were demanding and they thrown girl out of their house , do you have any kind oevidence with you . In your whole column it is nowhere mentioned as per the claim of her parents , you yourself claiming this ,let the court decide . Moreover I’m not disagree with your allegation but you are running a online media and should not write or publish things for which you don’t possess any evidence ,I hope my suggestion would be taken in a positive way
