A woman was detained for throwing acid on her ex-husband in Lahore, Samaa News reported.

According to the victim, Sajid Khan, his ex-wife attacked him outside his house near Band Road. The couple separated three years back. A week ago, Khan got married for the second time.

“On September 30, I remarried. While I was on my way back home, she [the suspect] threw acid on me. There were two people with me who witnessed the attack,” he told the police.


The investigation officer told Samaa that the woman disguised herself as a beggar to track Khan. “He has sustained third-degree burns on his back, neck and hands,” he added.

Police have arrested the woman while an investigation is underway.
