Like any other day on 9th Dec 2019, Anjali was on a morning run and she spotted a gold merchant who was shot and gruesomely hurt beside the road. He was attacked by miscreants due to unknown reasons. At a young age instead of getting panicked and running away from the crime scene, she showed extreme valour and courage.

She not only informed the local police station but also helped the victim to avail of first aid, as a result, the victim was saved.
