The incident happened on March 26 when the 20-year-old victim was alone at home. Her neighbour, S Nallapan (38) of Vyasarpadi, entered the victim’s house under the influence of alcohol and tried to misbehave with the woman.
After the victim informed her mother, A Manjula (40), about the incident after the latter returned home from work, she confronted Nallapan. However, Nallapan called his brother-in-law, P Manikandan (27) of Vyasarpadi, and they both attacked Manjula.
Manjula approached the MKB Nagar police station and a case has been registered. The accused were arrested after investigation and remanded in judicial custody on Thursday.
