Santosh Kumar had been furious when his sister Jayanti refused to marry a widower friend of his, who was a father of two children.
He was also upset with his sister for working as a bartender in Mumbai.
However, Jayanti refused to bow to his demands and told him that she would decide who she wanted to marry or where she worked.
