In front of the shop a tender coconut was kept and some lemons were cut into pieces. Kumkum and turmeric were spread all over the place. A lecturer who was passing by the shop in the morning informed the owner.

Hussain immediately rushed to the shop and was scared to see the scene. He called researcher Uday Gavnkar who spreads awareness against black magic to the shop. Uday Gavnkar came to the shop and gave advice to Husain that there is nothing like black magic. He made juice out of the lemons and drank the juice and gave the juice to others as well.
