Hospital when a woman approached her saying that she had found a purse fallen on the road and would like to share the money with her (Lakshmi).

“The woman took me to the other side of the hospital saying that someone might be watching them. As we went near a tree, another woman landed at the spot and claimed that it was her purse and quarrelled with us. To prove her point that she was not a thief, one of the women told me to remove my mangalsutra to swear that I have not stolen the purse,” the woman stated in her complaint.

After the mangalsutra was removed, the women pretended to pack it in her (Lakshmi’s) sari and made her to keep it on her head to swear. After this, both the women left the place and one of the women thrust Rs. 400 into her hand before leaving.
