Yadav shot the woman in her back while the two other accused stabbed her and her brother with a sharp-edged weapon. She sustained serious injuries in the head, legs, hands and shoulders, they said.

Police register case

An FIR was registered in the matter based on a complaint lodged by the woman's family.

According to the FIR, Yadav allegedly raped the woman on January 16 last year and was arrested and fired from his job. He was released on bail recently after which he started threatening the woman to withdraw the case against him. Yadav attacked her as she refused to withdraw the case, the FIR said. Mahipal and Rahul were arrested on Sunday.

They said the FIR against the accused has been registered under sections 307 (attempt to murder), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code and provisions of the Arms Act.

Ashok Gehlot attacks BJP government

Former chief minister Ashok Gehlot inquired about the health of the victim in the hospital on Monday and talked to her family members.

In a post on X, Gehlot said, "Inquired about the the victim's health and talked to the family members. If the victim had been given protection, this would not have happened. This is the negligence of the government."
