Chouhan said, “These girls were two to two and a half years old when we brought here in 1998. I have come to see my daughters. Sadhna is engaged in preparations for the marriage.”

Sadhna Singh said, “These girls were homeless when they were found at Khajuri village. Radha was found in Sehore district abandoned. Then Shivraj ji was member of Parliament from Vidisha and we took responsibility of their upbringing. They were kept in Shri Sunder Sevashram and all the arrangements were made from their education to marriage. Preeti and Suman are sisters and they are 22 to 23 years old. Earlier, marriages of four such daughters were solemnized here.”
