Berhampur: In a deplorable incident, a Std-VII student of Berhampur Blind School was attacked by some miscreants in the middle of the night at her home. Her throat was slit by some sharp object by the miscreants in an attempt to kill her but they fled the spot as the mother woke up.

This incident occurred at Kumudi village under Jarada Police Station where mainly tribals reside and there are around 35 households in the village.

When her mother found that her daughter was not present in the room, she searched for her and found her in a puddle of blood in the next room.

That visually challenged 16-yr-old girl was immediately taken to the MKCG Medical College and Hospital for treatment.

“My daughter is studying in Std-VII at Blind School, but as she was not keeping well, I had brought her to our village during Dussehra and she is here with me since then. I don’t know who did it but someone broke the back door and slit my daughter’s throat. We straightaway called for an ambulance and brought her to the hospital for treatment,” informed the mother of the victim.

Notably, the father of the girl works in Mumbai. The mother lives in the village with three children. The eldest son has no disability, but the daughter and the youngest son are visually impaired.

Talking to OMMCOM NEWS, Ganjam SP Ashish Singh said, “The girl is presently undergoing an operation as her vocal cord has been injured in the attack. She is not in a position to speak out. Meanwhile, a scientific team and a dog squad, police officials and a lady officer have reached the spot and investigation is on.”

Asked on whether she was sexually assaulted, the SP replied, “We cannot rule out the fact but it is yet to be established. Initially, the doctors are focussing to save the girl.”
