The woman's husband had gone to buy grocery. Finding her alone at home, the accused tried to rape her. When she resisted, the accused strangulated the woman. As she raised an alarm, the neighbours rushed to the spot and rescued her. The accused, however, managed to escape.
As the victim had been strangulated, she had got unconscious after the incident. She was rushed to a nearby hospital and later shifted to JP Hospital. Police said that a case had been registered against the accused and investigation was on. Jagat has been detained and is being interrogated, said police.
