She was dragged out by some workers or else she might have been crushed under it, the Nandurbar MP alleged, adding that four policemen present there did not act.

Gavit said she was singled out for the attack and asked the police to register a case under the atrocity law as well, as she came from tribal community but the cops did not do so.

She also showed photographs to support her claims.
