The victim went to Rajni’s house thinking she will get her dues, however, she was asked by the woman to do some work for money. When the victim refused to do so, the woman threatened her and provoked her dog to attack her.

Sapna was rushed to a private hospital for treatment and later approached police and filed a complaint.
