“Towards the principal and interest, I have paid Rs 7.5 lakh till now. But the money lender sought another Rs 2 lakh to settle the deal. I am ready to give the amount, but need some time to do so,” he said. He said when he failed to pay the interest amount in June, the blade mafia starting threatening him by visiting his house and abusing him. He had been paying the interest amount regularly till then. “As the goons started visiting my clinic, I  was forced to shut it down,” George said.
