VISAKHAPATNAM: In yet another incident of crime against women, a man attacked his wife with a knife suspecting her fidelity at Nagulapalli village in Munagapaka mandal of the district on late Saturday night.

However, the victim’s family members rushed her to a nearby hospital where she is recuperating. The injured was identified as N Vara Lakshmi, a native of Nagulapalli village and a resident of Gulligadu Jagannadhpuram village in Nakkapalli mandal of the district. Her husband N Apparao fled the spot after the attack.

According to Munagakapaka sub-inspector of police G Ravi Kumar, the couple had a strained relationship for about six years as Apparao was suspecting the fidelity of his spouse. In December 2014, a pregnant Vara Lakshmi went to her mother’s house to deliver a baby. On Saturday, Apparao visited her and questioned as to why she was not returning home.

In a fit of rage, he attacked Vara Lakshmi with a knife, inflicting grievous injuries on her legs and hands. However, her uncle D Paradesi came to her rescue and he also sustained injuries in a bid to save his niece. When he raised an alarm, the locals rushed to the spot and Apparao fled the scene. Both Vara Lakshmi and Paradesi were shifted to a hospital.
