The daughter of a senior IPS officer in Gujarat was allegedly attacked at her house after Saturday midnight by an unidentified man. Police said the 17-year-old girl was alone at home at the time and escaped unhurt. According to police officers, she has lodged a complaint with Gujarat University police station on Sunday, saying an unidentified person attacked her.

Watch what else is making news:

“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,” said a senior police officer. 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, after the alleged attacker disappeared, she woke up her neighbours who informed the police.

“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 following the complaint they recorded statements of the liftman and several personnel from State Reserve Police Force who are deployed at the tower for security. “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.

          Remember church attacks and rap, initially all doubted RSS / VHP / Bajarang Dal, finally it came out that it was either petty theft or Jihadi work.

              This is 'headlines' (or even 'breaking news') for those frustrated and dejected by PM Modi's initiatives and accolades he is getting from the common man.

                      How can someone posted to Tripura hold a flat anf fight for it in Ahmedabad. That's even more shocking news of misuse. So all those who made investigations alleging Modi and Shah involvement in so called misdeeds enjoy special privileges. You can only club them along with Tessta Setalvad, who enjoys privileges all over India from the Congress and Commie paties.This is what the bureaucracy and IPS wants us to believe !!! Absolutely crazy.

                        You should arrest Amit "Gunda" Shah for this incident and this is an example how they rule the country with terror and fear.

                                NAMO,SHAH,RSS is the axis of political thuggery and they power of administration is being misused to stifle, threaten and supress counter opinions, plurality, objections, discussions and debate. This is govt sponsored terrorism against those who question official version of truth.

                                    it's a problem that people like you who are brain-dead keep on calling others name. NAMO should have ped an ordinance to forcefully donate your/or people like you organs to some people who need it and who has a little more common sense and who will be a better citizen and a better voter. You seems to be a waste which due to our lack of infrastructure no one bothered to dispose off.

                                          A young girl is attacked, the daughter of an honest officer, and all you can think is how to settle scores with him, and with Teesta Setalvad, while people who should be behind bars (you know who) lord it over the land. Who is crazy ? And who is congenitally and caste-determinedly devious ?
