After the duo sought redressal of their grievance from gram panchayat pradhan Hiru Das, the latter called a kangaroo court in the local CPI (M) party office. Babi Khatun was reported to have been publicly assaulted, manhandled at the supposedly redressal meeting. Her unborn child was later known to have died.
