A 19-year-old woman was arrested in Aligarh on Thursday for allegedly throwing acid on her boyfriend for rejecting her marriage proposal.
According to the reports, the woman was charged under section 326 A (voluntarily causing grievous hurt by use of acid) of IPC based on the complaint by the victim’s family.
The complainants reportedly said that the duo was in a relationship but they had broken up a month ago. The woman started pressurizing him to marry her as he stopped talking to her. After that, she started calling him on the phone every day to convince him for marriage but was met with rejection.
On Thursday morning, she attacked the man with acid when he was standing at a shop near his house. However, the woman alleged that her boyfriend kept insisting on marriage. Moreover, she alleged that he threatened to make their intimate pictures viral if she rejected his marriage proposal.
The victim is reportedly undergoing treatment at the Jawahar Lal Nehru Medical College and his eye was badly affected by the acid attack.
