The daughter-in-law said her mother-in-law was upset over the social distancing by the family members. she was kept in isolation and was given food at a designated area. Even her grandchildren were also not allowed to go closer to her.

“My mother-in-law hugged me saying that I should also get infected with Covid-19,” the woman told health officials in a video interview on Monday, the TOI report further said.

“Do all of you want to live happily when I die?,” the elderly woman had reportedly told her daughter-in-law before hugging her.
