The Hush Post: A 20-year-old dancer was left partially blind after a spurned lover threw ‘acidic chemical’ on her face in Indore’s Banganga area. She has been identified as Rupali Nirapure.
The incident took place on Tuesday around 12:40 pm. The accused Monu called up the dancer and requested to meet her outside her house. In order to oblige him, she immediately went out.
As per a report, the CCTV footage showed the accused waiting outside her house. His face and head were covered, and he held a glass full of some chemical. When the victim came out, the attacker approached her from behind, and threw the chemical on her face. After that, he immediately made a vanishing act.
While the chemical hasn’t left any marks on Rupali’s face, it has damaged her corneas and has already reduced her vision by 25 per cent. Police are yet to confirm the nature of the liquid thrown at the victim. The incident took place when she was about to leave for the USA in a few days.
The accused, Mahendra alias Monu Sen, met Rupali in dance class and was forcing her into marriage although she had refused repeatedly.
Rupali is a famous folk-dancer and is a well-known name in Indore, who has performed across the world.
