LARKANA: A man threw acid on his sister`s face in Thariri Chutto village near Waggan on Monday. The reason was her refusal to give the hand of her daughter to her brother`s son.
The SPO, Nasirabad, Khan Tunio confirmed the incident and said the accused Manthar Shaikh had been arrested. The victim, Sakina w/o Qadan Shaikh was said to be admitted to Chandka Medical College Hospital as 40 per cent of her face had been burnt by acid, said sources.
