His daughter, Beerpal Kaur, 22, was shifted to Rajindra Medical College, Patiala, from Sangrur Saturday evening, where she is stated to be stable.
Two of Bhola Singh’s accomplices continue to be at large.
DSP Palwinder Singh Cheema said, “The woman has got sharp cuts near her right eye and neck, and bruises all over her body. Her father had attacked her with a sword several times. Doctors have said she is stable and will take a few days to recover.”
Investigation officer Tek Singh said nobody from the woman’s family that comprises her mother and brothers has visited her in hospital.
Meanwhile, the body of Bhola Singh’s son-in-law, Baljeet Singh (23), was handed over to his elder brother, Beer Bahadur, on Sunday.
Bahadur told the police that his family was angry when Baljeet had eloped with Beerpal and married her. They had, however, reconciled later, he added.
Bhola Singh, along with another person, had allegedly attacked the couple on Saturday morning while they were on their way to work.
