If the child uttered even a cry on seeing her mother being thus tortured, they would gag her and threaten to kill her. She could not even move out of her home to get herself medicines. At the end of seven days, a desperate Anjali managed to escape at the dead of night on July 27, walking all the way to Heria and then taking an early morning bus to Tamluk , where she was able to find her husband in a camp where other displaced persons were staying. In spite of her traumatised state, she was brave enough to go and lodge an FIR with the district superintendent of police, Pallabkanti Ghosh, with the help of Ganatantrik Mahila Samiti. At present, she is in the Tamluk district hospital for treatment.
