So far, a number of incidents relating to acid attack on women by men have come into light. But this time, the piece of news is like a role reversal of sorts.
A 19-year-old girl called her 21-year-old boyfriend home and burnt his face with acid as she was angry at him for rejecting her marriage proposal.
The incident took place in Bijnor on Sunday night. An FIR has been registered at Mandawar police station against the girl, who has been identified as Afreen. The girl had invited Sooraj Kumar home for her birthday party.
Kumar has received 20 per cent burn injuries and is being treated at a hospital, where doctors say he is out of danger “but a little disfigured.”
