She also spoke about all the incidents from first in which her daughter took money from different people. In the very first incident as said by the accused the victim mortgaged a pair of earrings, ring and a bracelet with one bar owner for Rs 12,000 approximately.
As per senior officer told Herald referring to the deposition copy, “She told the bar owner that her friend was in desperate need of money and she took the step forward to help the needy. However, when her mother realized that her daughter had taken a loan against the gold ornaments, she (mother) confronted the minor.”
