Utsav Sharma under police custody after attacking former Haryana DGP S. P. S. Rathore in Chandigarh

The bail plea of the youth who allegedly inflicted knife injuries on former Haryana DGP S.P.S. Rathore, convicted in the molestation case, will come up for hearing in a local court on Friday.

Utsav Sharma was yesterday remanded to judicial custody by Civil Judge Paramjit Kaur.

The 29-year-old youth, a student at Ahmedabad’s prestigious N.I.D., stabbed 68-year-old Rathore thrice in the face with a pocket knife on Monday while posing as a journalist.

The incident had occurred when Rathore was coming out of the court after a hearing.

After the incident, Utsav, who is said to be suffering from a psychological disorder, was arrested and on Tuesday was remanded to a day’s police remand.

Utsav’s parents had reached here from Varanasi on Tuesday after the incident.
