The police filed a closure report in the case where a bank officer, Jyoti Uday, was assaulted by a man with a machete at an ATM in Bengaluru on November 19, 2013. 

The closure report stated that the police were unable to catch the culprit, the Times of India reported.

Senior police officers said that the closure report was filed and submitted before the court last year, the TOI report said. 

Uday Kumar, Jyothi's husband, told TOI that his wife and he were not aware of the closure report being filed.

‚ÄúThere was no communication. In fact, there has been no mention about the probe for some time. We have been working on her health," Uday was quoted as saying by TOI. 

Jyoti was hacked multiple times with a machete by a man at a Corporation Bank ATM in NR Square near the BBMP headquarters. 

The attacker followed Jyoti into the kiosk after she entered. He closed the shutter and demanded that she withdraw money and hand it over to him. When she refused, he hit her multiple times with a machete, snatched her cell phone and left after pulling the shutter down again. 

When two schoolboys saw blood coming out of the ATM, they alerted the police. 

After the attack, Jyoti underwent treatment for 87 days as the machete-wielding man had wounded her head and face. This had resulted in a chip from her skull piercing her brain. The chip was surgically removed and her face was reconstructed by plastic surgeons.

Jyoti rejoined work in July 2014 and is currently undergoing Ayurvedic treatment, the TOI report said.
