"Those people came inside and behaved very rudely. They entered with a camera, we asked them not to shoot because we are girls but they said they will blur our picture. I requested them not to create chaos, there are two patients in our house. We asked for the license but they didn't show us and entered our house. They dragged out my grandfather, who was the heart patient and he died on spot. They also used abusive language," said a family member.

Further investigation is underway.
