The couple in Seremban, who were struggling to make ends meet with five children, have been receiving much-needed help from welfare associations and local political leaders, making their life easier.

However, as the financial aid began to pour in, so did threats via WhatsApp and SMS, the wife Saraswathi told the daily through their daughter Vidhya Ramakrish-nan, who interpreted her sign language.

Saraswathi said the perpetrators were demanding they transfer the money to their bank accounts.
