The Hush Post: When the lesbian’s relationship went wrong, a 19-year-old girl from Firozabad in UP attacked her 17-year-old partner with acid for ending their relationship. The police have arrested the accused. The victim has been admitted to a private hospital in Agra. She has sustained severe burn injuries on face, hands and chest.
The incident happened, when the spurned lover threw acid on Sarita (name changed) when she was asleep. The accused was angry with Sarita, as she broke up with her about two months ago.
The accused was the daughter of the victim’s landlord. She was in love with Sarita and was forcing her to marry her. To ensure that family and police do not get to know about her involvement, she burnt her hands with the acid after committing the crime and put the blame on one of Sarita’s classmate Sunil (name-changed).
Sarita’s father told the police that Sunil used to stalk Sarita. When she scolded him, he threatened her to teach a lesson. On the basis of the father’s statement, the police arrested Sunil but could not find any evidence of his involvement in the acid attack on Sarita.
Further investigation and inquiry by the police revealed that the acid attack was carried out by landlord’s daughter. During interrogation, she admitted that she was in a relationship with Sarita and committed the crime when the relationship turned bitter.
RK Singh, the Superintendent of Police (SP), Firozabad said, “She attacked the girl after the victim broke relationship two months ago. The accused took revenge by throwing acid on her when she failed to persuade her to continue the relationship. Initially, she tried to frame victim’s friend but finally, she broke and admitted to her involvement in the crime.”
A case under Sections 326, 354-D and 504 has been lodged at the Dakshin Police Station in Firozabad against the accused on victim’s father complaint. The accused has been sent to the jail.
