And we wanted to make an exit but he just came running, hitting my husband. “My husband tried to block the man and move me and my son away. “As the man was kicking, punching and just, beating him up, my husband told me to please leave and save our son. He said, “Please just go, go, save Veer” “I knew that my life was in danger and my baby’s life was in danger. So I hid under a tree”, Mrs Baja said.  “I called the reception, and I asked the reception to please make sure someone attends to my husband.

I didn’t want to be attacked.” “My husband sacrificed his life to save my son’s life and mine. He will always be our hero”, she said.
