“The victim is being taken for medical review and psycho-social care. We are still on a manhunt to arrest the robbers and we will surely get them,” it added.
The Police in an earlier statement said the robbers who kidnapped the lady and others wielded machetes and robbed the victims of some valuables and also escaped with one of the female residents of the house.
The victims told the Police that at about 0115 am they heard an unusual noise at the main gate of their house.
