A 70-year-old woman in Ulhasnagar was attacked with a blade by two brokers who visited her to settle a deal to sell her house on Friday evening.

Vithalwadi police have arrested one of the accused and further investigation is on.

The victim is seriously injured on her head, hands and neck, and is undergoing treatment. The victim was identified as Madhu Golani, 70, resident of Alankar Apartment of Camp No. 4 of Ulhasnagar. She lives alone and for the past eight months, she has been searching for a buyer for her house. She informed a few brokers for the same.

Police said that on Friday evening, two brokers, Ganesh Suhanda and Ravi Talreja, visited her house with a deal that was rejected by the Golani. They forced her to give the original documents of the flat, which again she refused.

An officer from Vithalwadi police station said, “The accused then indulged her in talking and went to the bedroom balcony. They called her to show leakage over there and after Golani went inside, both held her and beat her up holding her mouth.
