"I was treated like an animal, was made to sit on my hinges and asked to eat food without using hands. Moreover, she would spit in my food and watch me eat that," said Meena.

Meena was found in a severely injured state by Jagriti's husband and was taken to her relative's place to hide her. While investigating for the murder case of Rakhi, the police found her and took her to the hospital on Wednesday.
