Digvijay Singh has written that Vinod Irpache and the delegation have visited the Nasrullaganj area as a representative of the Tribal Development Council and met the victims.

On February 13, the village Mariyado and the tribal families in the vicinity went to the village of Bhilai to worship the God Badev.

The families of the victims had given information to the Ladqui police post and demanded action against the attackers.
