[pointing at Sonia
This woman is Sunil's wife!
The police may be fooled, and the law may be fooled, but a wife can't be. My husband died five years ago. I am a widow.
Stop! You're not a widow, you're a wife, and I'm alive. I received the sentence, but you endured the punishment... Today, before everyone, I'll say that I am Sunil Kohli and you are my wife. I was innocent then and I'm innocent now. And if to save your wife is a crime, then they can hang me for it!
