HYDERABAD: A day after Neredmet police registered a case against a man for physically abusing his girlfriend, the accused tried to turn the tables by trying to malign the character of the victim and her family. Meanwhile, the girl’s medical condition continues to be critical. 

Investigation officer B James Babu, said the accused has claimed innocence in the entire episode. “He said she has been having different health issues in the past one month and that he himself wanted to take her to hospital,” said the sub inspector. Further, he said that the accused questioned the character of the victim and her mother, and claims helping the duo. The police are yet to receive a medical report on her condition. Doctors have told police that she consumed or was forced to consume some acid-like substance due to which she has sustained internal burns. There are burn injuries on her face and stomach as well.

Based on a complaint from victim’s mother a case was registered under IPC Sections 344 (wrongful confinement) 355 (assault or criminal force), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons) and 509 (word, gesture intended to insult the modesty of a woman) on Friday. Rights activist Sandhya (Progressive Organisation for Women) visited the victim at Gandhi Hospital on Saturday. Josh Govada, who brought the case to limelight, said, “She has been given two units of blood but her body is not able to take it.”
