On November 18, the woman came to the shop and bought a pack of cigarettes. When the shopkeeper asked to pay for it, the woman abused him. She then picked up a knife from the shop and allegedly attacked him, he said. She also dragged him out, beat him up and ransacked the shop, Jadhav said. The woman then picked up a vessel containing hot tea from the adjacent shop and threw it on the man, he said. Some locals immediately rushed the injured man to a hospital.

Based on the victim's complaint, the police arrested the woman and booked her under IPC sections 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 387 (putting person in fear of death or of grievous hurt, in order to commit extortion), 427 (mischief) and 506 (criminal intimidation), the official said.
