The victim, Mangala Gowri, is now undergoing treatment at a private hospital. Though the police have surgically joined her severed left hand, which was chopped off, the victim needs to wait for a week to ascertain whether she can regain movement.
The incident has shocked the IT Capital of the nation because the rowdies dared to barge into the house of the victim and slashed her family members with swords. The incident took place on Thursday evening when her husband was not at home.
According to the police, the assault on the women by the rowdies was a case of mistaken identity."Kumar and Nanje Gowda are tenants at the house owned by the victim and her husband. Kumar and Nanje Gowda had a dispute with sand traders in the past. On the previous night of the attack, a few rowdies had heated argument with Kumar in the neighborhood. The next evening the same rowdies barged into the home of Mangala Gowri and attacked her and her mother-in-law with swords. They were under the impression that Mangala Gowri belonged to the family of Kumar and Nanje Gowda," a police officer, who is part of the investigation team, said.
Mangala Gowri's left hand was chopped from the wrist when she tried to defend herself from the swinging sword. The rowdies also assaulted her aged mother-in-law. Around the same time, the victim's husband returned home and he too was not spared. But he managed to escape from the scene with his 6-year-old daughter.
Based on information provided by Kumar and Nanje Gowda, the police are tracking the accused – Krishna, Sandeep and the third unidentified person – who have reportedly fled to the neighboring Andhra Pradesh.
