After that, the two got used to it through WhatsApp. Nisha says she falls in love with Vinodkumar at one point. Rahmat Nisha, who contacted Vinodkumar 10 days back, said she needed to meet him quickly and invited him to come to Trichy. Thus, Vinodkumar arrived in Trichy on 5th with his expensive two-wheeler. He contacted Rahmatnisha as he was near the Mannapuram Army Ground.
