While narrating the entire incident he said, "I begged them to spare my daughter and my wife and take all our belongings but they kept hitting us with iron rods while we were helplessly listening to the screams.....You cannot understand how I felt when my wife and daughter were beaten and gang-raped in front of my eyes. I would request the government and judiciary to allow our women to shoot the culprits in public."
