Acid attack on girl day before marriage

KASUR, Sept 9: Two people threw acid on the face of a would-be bride allegedly to avenge an old family dispute with her groom in Dhako village in Chunian police station.

Naik Bibi had to marry Mushtaq today (Monday) but groom’s former brothers-in-law, Sarwar and Liaqat, stormed her house where wedding ceremonies were going on in full swing on Sunday, threw acid on her face and fled.

Mushtaq had divorced assailants’ sister a few months ago and the assailants had nourished grudge against him.

Naik Bibi was taken to a hospital in Lahore owing to her critical condition. The police started investigation.
