Police recorded the statement of 28-year-old Shweta, two days after she was injured in a brutal attack at her house in Sector 50.


Though the statements have been recorded, prime accused Pankaj still eludes police.

Police sources said, "Shweta narrated the incident as to how the meeting for the land deal was going on at her house. She heard her father shouting and ran to help him, following which she was attacked."

DSP (south) Surjit Malik said "Raids are on to nab the accused involved in the incident. Raids were carried out in the city's vicinity and in some cities in Punjab."

Sixty- year-old SK Sharma and his daughter were left injured in a brutal attack by a realtor as a property deal did not click between them. Pankaj along with his wife and children ran away from the city on Tuesday, immediately after the incident.

The police sources said they were probing the dealing between Sharma and Pankaj, besides what deal was struck for the house on sale.

Sharma is a retired superintendent from the Punjab Tubewell Corporation. Pankaj had gone to Sharma's house after the senior citizen expressed his desire to sell his house in Tribune Colony, Sector 50.
