By the time neighbors came but to strange astonishment they too join in attacking Mercy and slapped her. Mercy and the other north east boys and girls who were living in the same building were threatened and warned not to report to police.
After the freak incident Mercy reported to North East Support Centre & Helpline: “the whole night I was so afraid with my little baby locked up the house and stayed inside till I could get friends from Manipur to come and help. I informed to my house owner and he did not come to help me also."
