The injured woman has been identified as Nibha Chetry. She suffered serious injuries and was rushed to a nearby hospital with the help of locals.

An investigation has been launched into the case, police said, adding that a case under relevant sections has been registered against the accused.

Earlier this month, a man reportedly chopped off his daughter-in-law’s hands with a machete in Assam’s Tinsukia.

She was later referred to Assam Medical College and Hospital in Dibrugarh for advanced treatment.

One of the locals who gathered at the spot soon after the incident said that he received a call from the victim's husband saying that his father attacked his wife with a machete. After receiving the information, he rushed to the spot.

After committing the crime, the accused, identified as Harinder Prasad, surrendered before Tinsukia Police and handed over the weapon used in the attack. He has been arrested and booked under attempt to murder charges.
