While the case of Captain Megha Razdan, who was found hanging from a ceiling fan at her home last month, is yet to be solved, her husband Captain Chaitanaya Bhatawadekar was on Wednesday attacked by unidentified people in Kunjwani area.

Bhatawadekar alleged the assailants tried to cut his tongue. Lieutenant Colonel S.D. Goswami, PRO Defence, Jammu, said: “The incident took place outside the army camp. Soon after, the injured officer was shifted to the military hospital.”

Superintendent of Police Zahid Manhas told HT that “an FIR has been registered and the probe team is trying to ascertain if the incident has any link with the case of Captain Megha Razdan.”

Sources said the “police are also trying to find out if it was not a case of attack and instead a handiwork of Bhatawadekar himself to avoid facing the court of inquiry as well as questioning by the area police in the case of the mysterious death of his wife.”

“The cut on the tongue of the captain is not that deep and he may be discharge from hospital within a day or two,” army sources said.

When asked about the status of Megha’s case, the police officer informed that “viscera report is still awaited and impotency test of Bhatawadekar has also not been completed so far.”

“Once we receive the reports, only then the probe can reach to any conclusion,” he added.
