Following the call, Anju sent a message to her father, stating that she was "dead" to him and asked him not to contact her again. This emotional plea came days after her father had vehemently opposed her actions and declared her "dead" to the family, expressing dismay over the way she allegedly left her children and husband behind.

Villagers react:

The incident has caused a stir in the local village, with residents expressing dismay over Anju's alleged actions. The villagers, feeling that her behaviour has brought disrepute not only to the village but also to the entire country, have decided to ban her from returning to the village. Moreover, there are calls for the expulsion of Anju's family members if they are found to be involved in the incident.
