"Adhyayan was in Delhi and was unreachable and we all died a thousand deaths. Such shocking news could have had a disastrous effect," Suman wrote. The report in question also mentioned Shekhar's elder son Ayush who was diagnosed with endocardial Myofibrosis. Aayush was born in 1983 and Shekhar and his family got to know about his disease in late 1990. He lost his son after four years of struggle, on July 22, 1994.Suman in a series of tweets shared the video of the news report and demanded an 'immediate public apology' from the organisation. He also tagged Minister of Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javdekar to take strict legal action against the media house.
