Moreover, she added that she was receiving threating calls from a specific number and that stranger extorted money from her.

"The first mobile call that I received was from 063******** and when he came he threatened that he will publish the news about my conversion and that I would get arrested and he demanded money from me and when we denied he threatened again. Thereafter he forcefully took 20 thousand rupees from us." [13]The News Minute All these claims were mentioned in Nidhi's reports.

  • Through a post on social media, Nidhi revealed that she once had to take therapy in 2021 in consideration of the fact that she was going through sentimental and psychological issues while reporting various kinds of disturbing cases. While recalling her experience, Nidhi said,

    Firstly, I am under no delusion that I can find a way for the profession to not affect me. It affects me quite deeply and to work efficiently, I think it is important to be affected to certain extent. It shows you care. But I also think it is important to be a sustainable and eco friendly journalist. Due to the erratic and emotionally draining nature of the profession, a lot of journalists tend to have disruptive personal lives. I find that damaging not just to oneself but also to your immediate ecosystem of people. To me that lifestyle is neither sustainable for oneself as a professional nor is it fair to your circle of loved ones. For the last one year, I have been regularly going for therapy. Apart from that I try to be diligent about mundane but important habits like working out regularly, paying attention to my food, making time to do fun things and to ensure that I am not constantly drowning in my own thoughts.” [25]Nidhi Suresh – Instagram
