After two weeks in hiding due to threats, Kanaka went to her house on Tuesday. However, when she went home, she was welcomed by her furious mother-in-law. Kanaka alleges that her mother-in-law beat her up with a wooden stick and threw her out of the house. 

Kanaka was allegedly hit 10-12 times. She had to be taken to the hospital. Kanaka reportedly said, "She said who is there? When I replied it was me, she came from the kitchen, took a wooden stick and started beating me. She said I'd slept with many people, they (mother-in-law and husband) didn't want to be at that house and started abusing me."

According to reports, a case has been booked against Kanaka's mother-in-law.
