This from M:
I spoke to Mr. Yadav on saturday. The brother in law has returned the compensation cheque to Sunita - he probably realized there's little he could do with a crossed cheque in someone elses name. But he still has the original death certificate.
Sunita and Sheetal's bank accounts should be up and running this week. Their village only has an SBI branch which was on holiday till today.
Will keep you guys posted on any further developments.
