Acid attack on Chandigarh woman for alleged affairJune 9th, 2010 - 12:51 pm ICT by IANS
Chandigarh, June 9 (IANS) A single mother in Chandigarh was Wednesday battling serious burn injuries after unidentified men threw acid on her for allegedly having an affair with her employer, police said.
Nisha, 32, who is divorced and lives with her father, was attacked Tuesday night while she was going to the market on her scooter.
“Some unknown persons chased Nisha, who was going towards a market on her scooter, in a Maruti car. After reaching close to her, they threw acid on her,” a police official said.
Nisha was rushed to the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) here in a serious condition. She sustained burn injuries on her face, arms, feet and eyes.
“She has a five-year-old daughter, who also lives with her. From the preliminary investigations, it seems her illicit relations with her employer could be a reason behind the attack,” the official said.
Nisha was working at a gas agency here in Sector 47 for the last eight years.
In her statement to the police, Nisha said that before throwing acid on her, one of the accused said: “Now your relationship with Raman is over.”
