"My birthday is tomorrow (October 18). Instead of preparing for my divali pooja and celebrations I'm trying to come to terms with some losers who broke into my store stealing most of my brand new stock and items. My pieces were unique items, some customized…I'm really shocked and sad but what can I do? I'm just another victim. Thank you to everyone for your concerns. Thank you to the Cunupia Police station for your swift response."

She also praised police officers for their work on the case.
