Sonepur: In a shocking incident, a man attacked his wife with sharp weapon at Mahulpali village in Dunguripali area here late last night.
The injured woman has been identified as Mamata Thapa. One year ago, she had tied the knot with one Rasiq Thapa of Bargarh's Khalabahal village.
However, Rasiq had been torturing her for dowry over the past few months. Mamata had left her in-law's place and had been staying with her parents after the harassment.
Last night, when Mamata was fast asleep in her house, Rasiq scaled the walls, entered her room and attacked her with a sharp weapon. He fled the scene as soon as Mamata started screaming for help.
She was rushed to Dunguripali hospital for treatment. Cops have launched further probe into the matter.
