LAHORE: An anti-terrorism court on Thursday convicted a man of throwing acid on his wife and sentenced him to 14-year imprisonment. Irfan Younas threw acid on his wife Rehmana, a nurse by profession, at Mayo Hospital on Aug 15. Nurses Shama Naz and Shazia also received burn injuries when they tried to save their colleague.
Rehmana submitted to the court that Younas quarrelled with her in the emergency ward of the hospital for not taking his phone calls. Before she could speak in her defence, he threw acid on her.
Gowalmandi police registered a case against Younas under the Anti-Terrorism Act and the PPC. The court also imposed a fine of Rs3.3 million on the convict.
