An Indian man who lost his wife three years ago erected a silicone statue of the late woman at his newly-constructed home.
Srinivas Murthy could not bear the absence of his late wife MVK Madhavi at his housewarming ceremony on Saturday, August 8, the reason why he erected the statue.
The 57-year-old businessman from Karnataka’s Koppal said he wanted to do something special in memory of his wife.
At the housewarming ceremony, the statue was dressed in a pink and gold saree resembling Murthy’s wife.
The businessman told The News Minute: “I wanted to do something special in memory of my wife. She died three years ago in a car accident."
Sriniva's wife died when the car she was driving in crashed into a truck. The back of the truck was said to have rammed into the passenger side of the car, and Madhavi died immediately due to impact.
His daughters sustained minor injuries and recovered physically.
