Multan: Man throws acid on wife
MULTAN: A woman is struggling for her life at the Nishtar Hospital after her husband threw acid on her three days ago.
Jahanian resident Fauzia was brought to Nishtar Hospital Multan with severe burns two days ago. According to Fauzia’s family, her husband Rashid managed to escape and police have still not been able to locate him.
Village-313 Jahanian resident, Rashid, married 22-year-old Fauzia four months ago but the couple often quarreled over finances.
“Fauzia often complained that her husband was abusive and beat her. They had a lot of financial problems because Rashid was a drug addict and spent all their money on feeding his addiction,” Fauzia’s neighbour Amna bibi said.
On Thursday evening, the couple had another fight and Rahid threw three bottles of acid on Fauzia.
Fauzia sustained severe burns to nearly 75 per cent of her body and fainted. Neighbours contacted her parents and took her to the THQ in Jahanian, where the district superintendent police (DSP) Chaudhery Fateh Muhammad came to investigate.
