Bhubaneswar: Two days after a video showing a miscreant attacking a young woman with a knife in the state capital surfaced, a special squad of the Commissionerate Police arrested the accused today.
Acting on a tip-off, the special squad conducted a raid at few places and nabbed the accused. Further questioning of the accused is underway.
Prima facie suggests that the youth had attempted to loot mobile phone from the victim and when she resisted, he attacked her, a senior police official.
On May 31, a CCTV footage of the incident surfaced where the youth was seen attacking the woman’s neck with a knife before fleeing the spot. The injured woman was later admitted to a private hospital for treatment.
