Bhubaneswar: Death case of social activist and motivational speaker Aditya Dash is getting shriller by the day with one more shocking revelation coming in from his mother.

Speaking to mediapersons, Aditya’s mother said the Balasore girl used to call him frequently and blackmail her saying that she would end her life if he does not marry him. She also used to threaten Aditya through TikTok videos.

She further said, “the girl wanted to marry my son after seeing his photo on social media. Aditya was interested to marry her and had sent her photo to us. However, Aditya later got frustrated with her behavior and refused to marry her. In fact, he had described the woman as a psycho due to her behavour.”
Yesterday, Bikash stated that both Aditya and the girl were in a relationship. However, he does not have any idea about her mental illness.
