The person, whom she identified as a member of an influential family of Maunhi (मौहीं) village, crossed the limits, used abusing words, and even molested her on Friday.

On reaching the police station with her complaint on the same day, instead of taking action the police allegedly threatened her and forced to sign a blank paper.
