A police official saw the woman covered in blood; the cop too was attacked by the accused with scissors
The Hush Post: In an incident that looks like a scene from a Bollywood movie, a man held a woman hostage at gun-point in her flat in Bhopal.
The victim, a 30-year-old woman, was held hostage at gun-point in her house on Bhopal’s outskirts by a man, identified as Rohit who claims to be her lover and who wants to marry her. A video shot from outside the building, the accused can be seen waving a victory sign from the window, a report said.
When the police tried to rescue the girl, they were threatened by the 30-year-old accused, who hails from Aligarh of Uttar Pradesh. A Sub Inspector (SI) GS Rajput said he saw the woman covered in blood, and that he too was attacked with a scissor by the accused, the report said.
“The accused has asked for a stamp paper and a mobile charger,” the SI was quoted as saying in the report.
The police reached the house of woman after neighbours complained of commotion. The cops are trying to negotiate with Rohit to secure victim’s release. Some friends of Rohit have also been called in by the police to convince him to open the door of the flat, the report said.
