VIJAYAWADA: A 50-year-old woman lodged a complaint with the Nunna police alleging that four unidentified miscreants attacked and sexually assaulted her. It has been reported that the woman had special mental needs. Police said a manhunt was initiated based on the allegations made by the complainant.
