Mumbra Police are on the lookout for a 23-year-old man who attacked his wife on Wednesday night after she refused to give in to his persistent demand of letting his sister adopt their five-month-old daughter.

Cops said Bharti Kadam, 20, is in critical condition and being treated at Kalwa civil hospital. She sustained grievous injuries after her husband Somesh, 23, attacked her with a sharp object. The incident occurred at the Kadam residence at Retibunder near Mumbra railway tracks.

Cops said Somesh had been nagging Bharti to let his sister adopt their daughter, as she hadn’t conceived even after two years of her marriage. However, Bharti refused to budge and said his behaviour was forcing her to contemplate divorce.

Angered by her statement, Somesh went to the kitchen and returned with a sharp object. He then attacked Bharti and fled the spot. It were the neighbours who heard Bharti’s cries for help and rushed her to Kalwa civil hospital, where the cops recorded her statement and registered a case against Somesh.

Investigation officer N Suryawanshi from Mumbra police station said, “We are yet to arrest him, as he is on the run. We have formed a team to nab the accused, who has been booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.”
