“To reduce the pain in my mind, I called Dashmat here today. I washed his feet so that I could reduce the pain that was in my mind. The one who commits crime has no religion, no caste, no party and therefore severe punishment was given to the one who did injustice and tried to reduce the pain of the one to whom injustice was done by hugging him,” CM Chouhan said.
“I also want to appeal to the people of the state that we should be full of humanity, compassion, love, kindness towards all of us and especially towards the poor.
