DASKA: Three accused attacked a girl with acid in a village of Daska on Sunday for refusing a marriage proposal.
The accused entered into a house in Ismail Awan village in Motra police station jurisdiction and threw acid at the victim girl and fled from the scene, local police said.
The police have registered FIR of the incident and are conducting raids for the arrest of the accused, local officials said.
It is pertinent to mention here that an anti-terrorism court in January awarded 34 years sentence to a man who had thrown acid at a woman in Lahore.
The court in its verdict handed Hamayun Maseeh 34 years jail term along with Rs2.2 million fine.
The efforts of rights activists lead to the passage of the Acid and Burn Crime Bill, 2017, in the National Assembly. The law also promises rehabilitation for victims of acid attack.
