Union Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Ramdas Athawale accompanied Payal. Nitin Satpute, Payal's advocate, said: "We sent the governor a letter requesting protection and told him about the case. Ramdas Athawale ji also asked him to look into the matter because there was nothing the police were doing. He assured us that he is worried about the atrocities that occur in the state against women and will be looking into the matter. For Payal and myself, I have asked for Y-category protection. Payal's life is endangered and I shield her, so I'm vulnerable to anti-social elements as well.”
