Burqa-clad unknown person throws acid on the face of a woman in Bihar’s Kaimur district

One side of the face and one eye of the woman was burnt in the attack.

A 30-year woman sustained severe burn injuries after a burqa-clad person hurled acid on her face in the Kaimur district of Bihar on Monday. According to reports, the unknown assailant entered the woman’s house in Bhagwanpur village in Kaimur district on Sunday night and threw acid on the woman before fleeing away.

According to family members, the woman was standing near the door of her house at around 7 PM on Sunday, when suddenly an unknown person arrived and threw acid on her face. The assailant escaped even before the relatives and neighbours of the woman can tell what happened. After realising the incident, they rushed the victim to the district hospital. After preliminary treatment, the duty doctor at the hospital referred her for further treatment. One side of the face and one eye of the woman was burnt in the attack.

The police said that a probe has been launched in the case. They further mentioned that it is yet to be identified if the burqa-clad person was a male or female.

The victim has been sent to a Varanasi hospital for treatment while her relatives have neither lodged any complaint with the police so far, nor have they expressed their suspicions about the identity of the attacker.

Acid attack has been one of the most violent manifestation of brutal assaults against women. A report published a few months ago said that the acid attacks against women are on the rise in India. It said that India has the highest number of acid attacks in the world, adding that every year 300 attacks are reported in India, while many others go unreported.

Of late, the safety of women in India has become a cause of great concern as reports ranging from violent assaults against women to rapes keep trickling in. Recently, the gruesome gang-rape and murder of the 27-year-old veterinary doctor in Hyderabad galvanised the people into pondering over the plight of women in the country and measures to be adopted to enhance their security and well-being.
