The couple said at the beginning of the video, “The truth is that we didn't know if we were going to put it. A lot has been said, some things were true, others were lies, we want to reflect in our own hands what really happened. After this long chapter, we will put an end to this unpleasant stage and return to the previous chapters.

The video revealed the campsite where they stayed and the grim site of the incident. Furthermore, the couple disclosed previous encounters with individuals they conversed with during daylight hours, two of whom were among those who assaulted the female tourist later.

The tourist couple also exposed the identity of one of the assailants and recounted conversations they had with him about peanuts. He recounted how the man approached the victim while she was eating peanuts and took some without permission.

Afterwards, the couple left the area and returned to camp a few hours later, assuming they would be the sole occupants at the site. “We are now returning to the place we saw previously to camp. We believe that there will no longer be anyone, at least that is what we hope," she said.

Later, they recalled the ‘horrific 3 hours of their lives.’ "It all started at around 8 pm and ended at 11 pm."

"I didn't know what I was going to do... I got up and ran towards her, with my hands tied behind," he added.

The duo headed to the hospital afterwards. “Seven guys raped her several times, they hit her. They hit me with a helmet several times, kicked me, assaulted me with stones," the victim's husband is heard saying.

The couple were later relocated to a government facility where they received police protection and stayed for three days. The couple also addressed in the video inquiries from people about whether they would continue their journey. He said, “We are going to continue, destiny has given us a second chance. We have seen death up close and that has made us reflect a lot…."

The Jharkhand Police apprehended eight individuals in connection with the incident. In addition to this, the police also provided a compensation of 10 lakh to the husband of the victim.
