“My family
has not just been pushed to a corner, it’s been destroyed. At one point, I
thought the only way to end it was by ending my life. I’ve sought therapy for
myself and now when these feelings appear, I keep reminding myself that I need
to be there for my children. They’re going through far worse,” Times of India quoted her as saying.

She also
said that Rhea will have to take therapy to overcome the trauma she has been
subjected to for the past few months.

she has gone through, how will she heal from it? But she is a fighter and she
must be strong. I’ll have to put her in therapy to help her get over this
trauma and reclaim her life,” she said.

still behind bars and I’m paranoid about what tomorrow will bring. I can’t
sleep anymore when my children are suffering in jail,” she said.
