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.
