A visibly upset Vinodhini's father, Jayapal, a watchman in a private school in Karaikal, said “He (the accused) should undergo the same pain which my daughter suffered. Acid should be thrown at him.”
Vinodhini had received financial help from various quarters, including Rs three lakh from the Prime Minister's Relief Fund and Rs two lakh from the Puducherry government and from the public in India and abroad, family sources said.
Meanwhile, a Puducherry report said Minister of State in the PMO V Narayanasamy expressed grief and sorrow over the death of the woman.
It was sad that Vinodhini, hailing from a poor family, died inspite of all efforts by authorities and hospital staff to save her, Narayanasamy told.
