She said they immediately complied with the bandits’ instructions to avoid being injured.

“They tied up my hand and foot, taking off my clothes, while touching my private part. They took my mother-in-law in the room, they knock her and push her on the bed she said. One of them said he just come out of jail and need money” the woman told reporters.

Further explaining, Dudhnath said that her husband was instructed to “put his hands in the air and lie on the ground.” His feet and hands were chopped and he was knocked on his head. At that time the other men were searching the other section of the house.
