Man denied bail in acid throwing case

PESHAWAR: A local court on Thursday dismissed pre-arrest bail application of a man charged with cutting hair of his wife and trying to burn her with acid over a domestic dispute.

Following the court orders the accused, Ishaq Khan, was arrested from the courtroom by local police. The court presided over by additional district and sessions judge Ajmal Wazir observed that the accused did not deserve to be granted pre-arrest bail.

It, however, confirmed pre-arrest bail of Ishaq’s sister and a niece in the same case. An FIR was registered against the accused at Pishtakhara police station on June 11, 2012. The complainant, Ms Tahira, stated that she was married to Mr Ishaq around six months ago. She alleged that the accused got annoyed with her over a domestic dispute following which he tried to throw acid at her, but she resisted the move and the bottle of acid fell down.
