According to Station House Officer Sanjay Jaiswal, the police intervened in the matter and found that the woman, after the argument, went to her sister's home in Umaria. The police have made the husband and wife speak to each other, and the wife will be returning home soon.

The current price of tomatoes across the country is 200 Rs per kg, hurting the pockets of the common man. While the government has announced ced, they will be selling tomatoes at discounted prices in the national capital and a few other cities.
