The 14 years old Gita saw it happening for her own eyes, before she hides in a Roman-Catholic Church.
Touching is her description in the letter to her niece: “it was awful.You see, thousands of people. Then suddenly the shooting started.
Panic broke out. A barrel organ was just playing the National Anthem,when his rear wheel got shot, by which it gave a miserable cry and then collapsed.
The Domestic Armed Forces were shooting behind scaffolds, prams, cars etc. Babies and little children were being trampled on the Dam.
People around you collapsed and died.
One moment it looks like a battlefield.
Then the people were gone and there were only laying deceased and wounded and bags, prams, wallets etc.
It was just hell.
