But before Pradhan could reach the victim’s house, Nathulal, who was already present at the house waiting for the woman, attacked her with a sharp-edged weapon, chopping-off her nose.

The additional superintendent of police, Vivek Kumar Vaid said that a case has been registered and the woman has been sent for medical examination.
