The incident took place near the Collectorate, which is adjacent to the court building. The woman, Afsana, has lodged a police complaint alleging that she was attacked by her ex-husband Aslam and three others, SHO Surajpur Girish Kotiya said. Afsana had married Aslam 18 years ago and later divorced him, and then remarried.
She has a daughter from her first marriage, the officer said.

She was admitted to a hospital as she suffered stab wounds, he said.
