FAISALABAD: In a rare departure from the usual inhuman practice in which women suffer acid assaults at the hands of men, a young man got his face badly burned when a girl allegedly threw the burning chemical at him in a village near here on Sunday.
Hailing from Marzipura, 21-year-old Mohsin told police that he was standing near a bus stop when Nabeela, 20, arrived there, threw acid at him and escaped.
Mohsin said he had started ignoring Nabeela for some time which led her to take the extreme step. Mohsin provided little detail about his affairs with the girl.
Lyallpur Town SP Zahid Gondal told Dawn that the girl had been taken into custody on the basis of Mohsin’s statement.
Mohsin was admitted to Allied Hospital where his condition was described as stable.
