However, the couple was attacked by the girl's father today afternoon. The government will do everything to provide support. The girl's father has also been nabbed by the cops," he told ANI.
As per the doctor who is treating the couple, the woman, Madhavi, continues to be in a serious condition, while her husband, Sandeep, is stable.
