Bhubaneswar: The Capital city is becoming a crime capital thanks to increasing cases of attack on women this New Year.
A married woman was stabbed with a knife by a man in Dumduma under Khandagiri police station limits Saturday morning. The incident comes less than 24 hours after three girls were thrashed by miscreants on busy Nandankanan Road.
According to police, three girls were allegedly harassed and attacked by a few bike-borne miscreants on Patia-Nandankanan Road Friday evening.
The woman has been identified as Tanuja Nayak, who is residing at Dumduma phase IV area in Khandagiri. Police sources said Tanuja has been married to one Suresh Murmu, who stays in Jharkhand.
“Tanuja and her brother Debashish had left the house Saturday morning in a Maruti Swift car to visit Suresh in Jharkhand. However, after driving for some distance, the duo was intercepted by a miscreant who waylaid their car in the area and attacked Tanuja with a knife. When Debashish stepped out of the car, the desperado fled the spot leaving behind his motorcycle.
Debashish then rushed his sister who was profusely bleeding with injuries to a hospital. And nothing was reportedly looted in the incident,” they added.
Khandagiri police said they have launched a manhunt to nab the miscreants involved in the gruesome act.
“We suspect it to be a matter of personal dispute possibly involving a jilted lover. We are investigating the case from all possible angles,” the police added.
Sources said the cops are zeroing in on a real estate agent who either attacked the woman over a personal rivalry or a land dispute.
Meanwhile, Bhubaneswar DCP Satyabrata Bhoi said they have identified the youths involved in Friday’s attack on three girls on Patia-Nandankanan Road.
The DCP’s statement came after the cops identified the miscreants from the video shot by one of the victims with the help of her cell phone.
Police sources said the cops have detained a few suspects in connection with the case and have also seized a motorcycle.
Earlier, contrary to the commissionerate police’s tagline ‘‘We Care We Dare’’, one of the victims alleged that the PCR vehicle officials reached the spot several minutes after the girls had made a distress call in this regard.
