The Delhi Police arrested three men for allegedly throwing acid at a 17-year-old girl in the national capital this morning. The police had earlier detained one of the accused based on the survivor’s statement.
The police were informed of an acid attack in Delhi’s Mohan Garden area around 9 am today. The girl was with her younger sister when two bike-borne men threw acid at her and fled.
“My sister and I were on our way to school around 7:32 am. Suddenly, I heard her scream. I got nervous seeing her face and called our father. She was then taken to the doctor. The bike didn’t have any number plate. She knew both of them. My father used to know them too,” the teen’s sister said.
The girl is currently undergoing treatment.
Further details are awaited.
“Two goons throw acid at a school girl in broad daylight in the country’s capital. Does anyone still fear the law? Why can’t the sale of acid be banned? Shame,” she tweeted.
She said in another post that acid is available as easily as vegetables and questioned why the government was not prohibiting its retail sale. She said the Delhi women’s panel had demanding this ban for years. “When will governments wake up?”
