We wanted to kill ourselves: Girl in Bal Thackeray Facebook row
“On Sunday, I was not allowed to see Rinu at all. We finally came home at 2.30 am and woke up at 7.30 am to go to the court. We didn’t eat or drink anything and then I ran around arranging for bail. It is not a great experience, but we will not forget it either. On the positive side, people are now understanding the IT Act. The sad part is that we had to the victims,” he said.

In a span of 10 days, Rinu has gone from being a 21-year-old aspiring singer to giving multiple interviews a day, en route to a whirlwind trip to Delhi to participate in NDTV’s We The People. Since then Rinu has grown increasingly uncomfortable, one interview at a time.
The relentless attention has, however, brought a few pleasant surprises. On Tuesday, she received a call from Muzik Lounge School of Audio Engineering in Chennai to which she planned to apply and had an interview with this month. “The principal asked me if I was the same girl who was arrested. For a minute, I didn’t know what to say. But when I said yes, he said I need not come to Chennai for interview and they would admit to the school,” she said.
