Later, in her defence, Dimpi shared a video introducing herself as an animal rights activist. She said that she has been working against animal cruelty for the past 15-18 years. She revealed that she received a call a few days back about alleged cruelty to the dogs, but, she couldn’t come as she was not in town. She further claimed that the guard had also killed a dog because he had littered in front of the building.
She said in the video, "On Saturday also, I got a call about cruelty on dogs, and I arrived at the colony. The guard was seen beating dogs with a stick. I tried to stop him, but he began to beat me. I snatched his stick. He asked his friend to shoot a video of the incident. The guard was also mentally ill"
