After the incident on Tuesday morning, Chahat started screaming demanding to see her mother. He was constantly screaming for her mother but the family members told him that her mother was sick and resting in the bedroom. They took him to the garden. He threatened to jump from the garden wall and was continuously asking to go to her mother. Meanwhile, he was going to every family member and complaining why he was not being allowed to see his mom. He kept asking questions about her. Everybody who was there shed tears after seeing Chahat's condition. 17-month-old Mukund doesn’t even know the meaning of death and life and was also crying to go to his mom as per the neighbors.
