Husband of the woman, who had accused self-styled godman Asaram's son Narayan Sai of repeated sexual assault, was severely injured after he was attacked by unidentified persons here, police said.

"The victim's husband was coming back from his office at ESCI hospital in heart of the city this morning when some unidentified men attacked him from behind with sharp weapons.

They stabbed him on his back and then on his face many times," police said.

The assailants managed to flee even as the man fell on the ground with two wounds in the back and three on the face, city Additional CP SM Katara said.

"The victim was taken to a hospital by local people.

We have also recorded his statement and registered a complaint," Katara said.

A complaint under Section 307 of the Indian Penal Code for attempt to murder has been registered.

"Police have been investigating the case thoroughly and the assailants will be caught shortly," the police officer assured.

According to the hospital authorities, where the injured is undergoing treatment, there were two grievous wounds on the back and one severe wound on the victim's face.

"He is out of danger after being operated successfully," they said.

Earlier in the day, Narayan Sai was brought to a local court, which extended his judicial custody by another 15 days.

While he was stepping out of the court, reporters asked him questions in connection with the case, to which he just responded by saying "dekh lenge!" (will see).
