The victim was shifted to Jaipur where she is currently undergoing treatment even as the main accused remains at large. An FIR was registered through a court complaint at Nauganwa police station on November 10.
The woman’s mother said that her daughter’s wedding was scheduled for November 27. Another relative claimed that the woman was admitted to a local hospital in Alwar, but doctors referred her to Jaipur for specialised treatment under an ophthalmologist due to the looming risk of vision loss.
The assault took place shortly before Friday midnight when the victim was asleep. The accused and his aides attacked her with a knife, causing multiple injuries to her neck and eye.
The woman’s mother also alleged that the accused had threatened to cause harm to her son. Alwar police said on Saturday that the doctors are keeping a close watch over the woman.
