Ms Singh had come to Kalinga Nagar for some business-related work on Tuesday and was staying in the guesthouse. Hundreds of Maithan plant workers staged protest in front of the guesthouse blocking the entrance. The industrialist was saved from the ire of the protestors after Kalinga Nagar Additional District Magistrate Santosh Kumar Mishra and Jajpur SP Charan Singh Meena rushed to the spot and rescued her.

As per the negotiation, Ms Singh agreed to pay one-month salary to the agitating workers from her personal account. She paid the amount instantly following which the agitators were pacified.
