The daughter of senior IPS officer Satish Verma in Gujarat was attacked at her house on Saturday midnight by an anonymous person.
She registered a complaint with Gujarat University police station on Sunday stating that “an unidentified person attacked her.”
A senior police officer narrated that “She has said that around 1:30 am she felt there was someone in the house who assaulted her and tried to throttle her. She used all her might to defend herself and after a scuffle, the stranger ran away.” He added that she also ran after him who disappeared.
Police said that the officer’s daughter escaped with a minor injury. “There is a minor injury mark on her finger but she doesn’t know how she got it.” According to her complaint, she woke up her neighbour after the attacker disappeared and then the police were informed about the incident.
“The Gujarat University police station is looking into the complaint. We are investigating it thoroughly,” said Ahmedabad police commissioner A K Singh.
Gujarat University police officials said that after the complaint they investigated and noted the statements of liftman and others to extract information about the incident and police then informed that “no one saw anything on that night. We are still clueless.”
They said that a plastic bag with two holes has been found in the house, hinting that the unidentified person may have used it as a mask. The officer, however, refused to talk about the incident.
