According to Dasi they even threatened her by saying that she should know they have their own connections.

However, Dr Dasi said her message to these calls was simple, and that she was just doing her job of trying to keep people safe.

Dr Dasi says it was not easy for them as after the ordeal, her team had to go through some mental check-ups which was critical in their recovery process.
