Lawyer Vandana Sudha Venkatesh further wrote, "What followed was eight police officers came to our home and yelled at us citing child abuse and two recorded me without my consent. When I went to their house to ask them not to use such intimidation tactics, Mrs. Hilori (whose husband is COVID positive), spat on my face (yes, I emphasise COVID positive) and called me R****, k******, k**** and a b****."
