Hyderabad: An old couple was injured seriously when an armed robber entered their house and attacked them in a bid to rob their house in Nalgonda district. The suspect stabbed the husband and wife who tried to stop the robbery.
The robber, however, could not take any gold from the house as locals gathered hearing the couple’s scream. The incident occurred in the early hours of Tuesday at Vinayakanagar in Athmakur mandal.
