In the latest turn of events, it has been revealed that Amrita was subjected to immense stress for staying away from her employer's extra-marital affair, which also led to the termination of her two-year-old job. Read below to know more.
Amrita Was Under A Lot Of Pressure
Sumeet said that Amrita's pregnancy was a rough one and the doctors had suggested bed rest. However, she had to get back to work despite applying for leaves due to a lot of pressure from her employer. She was asked to work on the weekends too, which began to take a toll on Amrita's health.
Her Employer Had An Extra-marital Affair
After resuming work following the first trimester, Amrita was asked to fly down to Goa immediately. Upon reaching there, Amrita was asked to talk to her friend who had an affair with her employer. When she was asked to help them patch up, Amrita refused to interfere in the matter. Later, when her employer's wife got to know about the affair, Amrita was blamed for not informing her about the same.
Her Water Broke After The Goa Incident
Sumeet said Amrita looked extremely tired after returning from Goa. The same night, her water broke and she was rushed to the hospital immediately. The baby was fine, but she was kept under observation, as the fluid had already drained.
Amrita Was Terminated Without Notice
After returning from the hospital, Amrita wasn't able to access her official work mail. Her work contact number was disconnected. When she mailed her employer from her personal e-mail account, he refrained from answering to it. Sumeet says Amrita took it to heart, as she was in one of the top positions in the company and had served them for over two years.
She Had A Miscarriage After Seeing The Termination Letter
Sumeet says Amrita broke down after seeing the termination letter. Within a few hours after that, her umbilical cord collapsed. She was taken to the hospital immediately!
They Buried Their Baby Boy
"We buried our baby boy. It was a very emotional moment. Amrita made a very nice cradle, we put a blue scarf on his head. We put in chocolates in the cradle and we also put in a letter. We also made a family tree, and put it alongside," said Sumeet.
Sumeet Wants The Employer Punished
When asked if the couple is looking for any compensation, Sumeet said, "We are not looking for any financial compensation. But we want this guy to be punished for what he has done to us. What financial compensation could match up to the loss of a baby? He should be punished, so that he doesn't repeat it again. And it has to be a severe punishment, as at the end of the day it's murder in disguise."
