Girl suffered minor injuries, she narrated a different story
As per reports, she also suffered minor injuries. An FIR has been registered under IPC Section 326A (voluntarily causing grievous hurt by use of acid). On the other hand, she has said the victim was threatening her to make their intimate pictures public.
In June, a similar incident was reported
This is the second incident in recent months. In June, a Delhi woman threw acid at her boyfriend after he refused to marry her.
The case got attention after the accused posed as a victim. Police interrogation found that the girl planned the crime as she thought that once she disfigures her boyfriend's face, he will be forced to tie the knot with her.
Girl asked boyfriend to remove helmet, threw acid
It was the CCTV footage that helped Delhi police crack this case. The victim told police that just before the attack, the girl asked him to take off his helmet saying its strap was causing her discomfort.
Subsequently, she was called for questioning.
Her contradictory statements raised suspicion and on a sustained investigation, she confessed to the crime.
