Vijayawada Woman And Son Committed Suicide After Husband Objected To TikTok Addition

Addiction to social media like TikTok can result in many unfortunate incidents, including deaths. A Monday case killed two people, sadly.

Besides their benefits, social platforms have also shown drawbacks with the appearance and activities of bad actors, resulting in many unfortunate incidents, including deaths. On Monday, addiction to TikTok took two people’s lives in an event that could have been prevented.

A 35-year-old woman in Vijayawada committed suicide after being admonished by her husband for spending too much time on the app. Shortly after, her son killed himself too, finding the separation unbearable. Both the mother and the son took cyanide at their home in YSR Colony.

The unfortunate incident results from an addition to social media and financial distress

The woman in question is Shaik Karima while the son is a minor.

According to inspector Mohamad Umar at Two Town police station, the 35-year-old and her husband, Shaik Samshuddin, got in a fight. The husband is a gold polisher, who became unemployed during the nationwide lockdown due to COVID-19. While Samshuddin expressed his objection to his wife’s addiction to TikTok, Karima lashed back at him about their financial distress. A senior police officer said:

“Two months ago, the family had met with a car accident resulting in grievous injuries which cost them 4 to 5 lakh. The family took loan to pay for their medical expenses. After the lockdown was imposed, Samshuddin lost his job as jewelry shops remained shut.”

Their elder daughter’s recent wedding accounted for part of the liabilities too. After that, Karima turned to TikTok for emotional comfort by making videos of herself enacting movie scenes. After the fierce argument with her husband, Karima too in a bottle of cyanide, used for gold polishing, to end her life. Just minutes after seeing his mother kill herself, the 16-year-old son drank the rest of the bottle and died immediately.

From this case, it’s important to keep calm during difficult situations. Arguments and backlashing at each other won’t help but will lead to unfortunate, regretting consequences.
