Bangalore Police on Thursday claimed that they have made a breakthrough in the ATM attack case, in which a woman was brutally beaten up and left bleeding by a man, and said that they have detained a person.
Police said that Central Crime Branch officers detained the person from Andhra Pradesh and are tracing the main accused, who they say is hiding in the state.
The accused sold the mobile phone of the victim to this person, police said. They did not give any detail about the detained person.
Police traced the mobile phone and nabbed the person. They are now interrogating him.
The 44-year-old victim Jyothi Uday, a manager at the state-run Corporation Bank's branch on Mission Road, sustained grievous head injury and suffered partial paralysis, doctors said on Wednesday. She will take six months to recover, they added.
"The victim (Jyothi) is recovering from severe injuries on the head and face, and has suffered heavy loss of blood," BGS Hospital chief neurosurgeon NK Venkataramana said.
