The police have recovered a Hero Deluxe motorcycle (PB 52 B 2187) and a sickle used in crime from the possession of accused persons. As per information, a 50-years-old woman identified as Balvir Kaur of village Faror in Fatehgarh Sahib was found lying gravely injured in the fields near canal at village Ferozepur on Wednesday morning. The victim is out of danger and is undergoing treatment at PGI Chandigarh.
