Hyderabad: A married woman was injured when two drunkards allegedly attacked her with a blade when she resisted their bid to outrage her modesty at her house in Lakshminagar area here today, police said.

The accused identified as Prabhu Das and Hanumanthu, both in their 20s, are employed by her labour contractor husband, they said.

After they fell on ground, one of them took out a blade and attacked the woman, resulting in injuries to her chin and hand, before fleeing, police said, adding the duo were apprehended later.

“The duo have been arrested and produced before a court which sent them in judicial remand. The woman was admitted to a hospital and is out of danger,” said Alwal station police inspector S V Hari Krishna.

A case is booked in this regard by police.
