Cuttack: While denizens of Silver City are still reeling under the fear of triple murder in the city, it is suspected that the killer struck again last night.
According to sources, the incident took place at around 10 pm on Sunday while the victim, identified as Sandhya Tarai of Malla Sahi of Jobra, heard a noise and then spotted a man standing suspiciously near her house.
When the women went out to have a closer look at a man who covered himself completely in a shawl, the miscreant suddenly attacked her using a sharp weapon. Though locals rushed to help the women after hearing her scream, they were unable to nab the attacker.
Sandhya, who sustained a cut injury on her neck, has been admitted to SCB Medical College and Hospital for treatment.
While the exact reason behind the attack is yet to be ascertained, it is suspected that it was an act of the ‘psychopath’ serial killer who killed three persons within 24 hours on July 23 and July 24.
However, local police have refuted the claims and termed the incident to be a fallout of chain-snatching bid.
Meanwhile, Commissionerate police claimed to have a clue about the serial killer and the killer will be caught very soon.
