A 40-year-old man, identified as Mahantesh Cholachagudda, in Karnataka's Bagalkot district allegedly attacked a woman lawyer Sangeeta Shikkeri, who happens to be his neighbour over a property dispute. After receiving a complaint from the victim, the police arrested Mahantesh and was produced in the court. The accused is a photographer at the University of Horticulture Sciences in Bagalkot. 

Sangeeta said she had filed a complaint against the Bagalkot BJP General Secretary Raju Naikar for harassing her over a property dispute. She believed that it was the reason behind the assault. BJP leader dismisses the charges saying it is a political conspiracy to defame him.

Advocate Mahendra Kushwaha, a resident of Unnao, has allegedly threatened the policewoman of an acid attack after she rejected his marriage proposal. The police have registered a case against the miscreant under sections of forgery, sexual harassment of the victim, threatening, defamation and extortion.

According to the victim, she started getting calls from policemen from Krishna Nagar, Banthra and Naka in Lucknow and a few other police stations in Hardoi district. The policemen told her one Ram Pyari of Hardoi had registered a complaint against her and her brother. 

The woman constable feigned ignorance as she and her family members did not know the complainant. During the probe, police zeroed in on the name of Mahendra who was behind the mischief.
