Six injured in acid attack

LAHORE: As many as six people received burn injuries when unknown suspects threw acid on them in the Manawa area of Lahore on Wednesday.

Five women and a man were injured in the attack, who were later shifted to Mayo Hospital for treatment.

The accused are on the loose while police have launched an investigation into the matter.

Earlier on July 19, a man threw acid on his wife over a domestic dispute in Lahore’s Green Town area.

According to police, the suspect threw acid on his wife, Naila, when she left for her parents’ house after a fight. The victim was shifted to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

A case against the suspect was lodged by Naila’s relatives, after which he was arrested.
