The victim said that they were attacked a couple of times earlier as well and were living in fear in the locality for the last seven years.

Commissioner of Police Amulya Patnaik also informed Union Home Secretary that the attack on the family was not linked to their identity but was a "local issue" related to a feud over the feeding of stray dogs. "The incident on Thursday too was a fall out of a number of arguments that had taken place earlier", said Tauqeer. She also alleged that people didn't come to help them, but rather kept making videos.

The woman alleged "constant harassment" and mentioned that the victims have requested police protection. She also claimed that she and other residents were carrying sticks because of a dog menace.
