Baripada: A girl and her mother were attacked by a youth, reportedly the girl’s beau, in Jarada village in Mayurbhanj district late last night.
The accused, identified as Bharat Mohanty – a resident of Beladiha village under Kaptipada police limits, injured his girlfriend along with her mother by attacking them with a sharp weapon following an altercation.
The injured duo has been identified as Bishnupriaya Kamila and daughter Bhagyashree Parida.
