Keonjhar: A woman was injured and her husband sustained critical injury after a group of unidentified looters attacked a middle-aged couple during a robbery bid in Patana village under Ghatagaon police limits in the district last night.

The injured couple has been identified as Badia Sethi and his wife Sumitra Behera.

“At least four masked miscreants entered into my house by breaking the door grills and locks late in the night while all the family members were asleep. I woke up and raised an alarm after hearing the noise created by their attempt to break the locks of an almirah in the house,” said Sumitra.

“Fumed over my attempt the looters started attacking me with cudgels. Later they attacked my husband with knives and some other sharp weapons and fled from the spot looting valuables,” she added.

The couple was rushed to the Ghatagaon CHC by some neighbours immediately and Badia was shifted to Keonjhar DHH later due to critical condition.

Ghatagaon Police has started investigation into the matter.
