Somehow Jyoti Patel saved her life
For a long time the attackers continued abusing and causing vandalism. Jyoti Patel saved her life by running inside the house. Jyoti Patel also made a video of vandalism taking place in vehicles on her mobile and blamed BJP candidate Gopal Bhargava, his brother Shriram and son Abhishek Bhargava for being behind this attack. Gadhakota police also reached the spot, which chased away the attackers from there. After this, additional forces from nearby police stations including the district headquarters were also called to the spot.
