Meanwhile, Kamya’s post was full of anger and contempt towards the slow pace of justice system. “Two years and no trial also as yet! Don’t laugh, I am not giving up. Yes, your parents are miserable but ‘I have complete faith in our judicial system’, that’s what they say, right? To hell with that. Value your life because you have no value here. People forget and move on and you better not rest in peace,” she wrote as caption to their picture together on Instagram.

“Please don’t write about my friendship with her, please don’t write RIP here. If you want to do something then please don’t be blind in love, don’t give up on yourself, fight back, stop domestic violence... just stop stop stop! Nothing and nobody is worth your life! Because when you die, there are a hell lot of people who die with you! Breathe, stay alive! Life is beautiful,” she added.

Popular television actor, Pratyusha committed suicide in her Mumbai home in April 2016. Her boyfriend, Rahul Raj Singh found her hanging by the ceiling fan.
