Anupriya Goenka told TOI, “My family trusted him very heavily. Even I had started to believe in him. He sounded reasonable and said just the right things, he sounded very practical. But he tried to take advantage of me. I was 18 then. That scarred me for a very, very long time. Thankfully, I did not let him take advantage. I was able to escape the situation.

I kept doubting myself because I had believed in him for so long and didn’t think it was possible.”
