She further alleged the government of plotting to kill her. 'This government will get me raped and killed. I do not feel sorry for dying, but I am a sadhvi and brahmacharini.

The doctors and the hospital administration clearly denied that any such accusations were made. "Her mensuration cycle was irregular. So, a pregnancy test had to be done to rule out its possibility. But no one said anything even close to what she is claiming. The entire incident has been video-taped," Dehradun CMO Meenakshi Joshi told TOI.
"I did not say anything related to her pregnancy and she was treated like any other patient," said the doctor in his defence
