TikTok video helps a woman find her husband who went missing 3 years back
- In Villupuram, Tamil Nadu, a woman found her husband who was missing for three years on
- The video-sharing app has been a hit in India but had also seen a temporary ban from the Tamil Nadu government.
- The ban was later lifted by the
Madras High Court.
According to a reports, Jayapradha who hails from Villupuram had filed a complaint about her missing husband Suresh in 2016. Three years later, a relative spotted someone who looked like Suresh and when she checked with Jayapradha it turned out to be Suresh indeed. Jayapradha then alerted Villapuram police who then tracked down Suresh at Hosur.
An unhappy Suresh had apparently fled from his home to Hosur. He had taken up the job of a mechanic and was living with a transwoman.
However, these are not the only bizarre cases of TikTok reported from the state of Tamil Nadu. Earlier in June 2019, a 24-year old woman from Ariyalur took her own life after her husband stopped her from using the app.
In Tamil Nadu, the craze for TikTok has not just been a problem with the people but with the government too. The Madras High Court had banned the app in the state stating that the video-sharing app encouraged pornography. It had also said that they will ask the Supreme Court to further support the ban.
However, the ban was soon lifted on the condition of quality control.
