Revenge: Faisalabad girl flings acid on jilted lover

Published: March 12, 2012

Nabila alleges that her lover, Mohsin Qadeer, started to ignore her as he allegedly got involved with other girls. DESIGN: EMA ANIS

FAISALABAD: Call it love, jealousy or passion, Nabila flung acid on her “fraudulent” sweetheart to take revenge from him.

Belonging to Faisalabad, Nabila alleged that her lover, Mohsin Qadeer, started to ignore her as he had allegedly gotten involved with other girls.

“He kept promising me for 2-3 years that he will marry me, but he did not keep contact after other girls entered his life.”

A police official at the Marzi Pura police station said that Nabila had flung bathroom acid on Qadeer, which affected his eyes but did not harm him much as it was not concentrated.

Nabila confessed her crime to the police which has kept her in detention at the Marzi Pura police station.

Correction: An earlier version of this story had used the term ‘sweet revenge’, which has now been removed. No offense was intended.

    The story is portrayed as if she has done some sort of heroism. Really? is that how excited we should get when women commit crimes to men which are generally associated with men towards women. is there any shame in this two bit retarded newspaper?

    whats next? minority groups abducting people (and it happens a lot) be a point of celebration? Shame on your douche bags.

    Where are women rights activists now?

    I am sure that this news will not get the level of attention that a female receives. It is because males are not humans.

    Good luck males, now females would pour acid on you. LOL!

    Is it the policy of express tribune to declare the throwing the acid on boys by girls as sweet. If not than kindly change it

    You wouldn’t have called it ‘sweet revenge’ if it were the other way round.

    @Huma Shah: That was exactly the first thought that came to my mind. We have a very screwed justice system that only punishes the weak, not that this girl shouldn’t get what she deserves but we need justice across the board for this society to become civilized.

    I Agree there have been so many cases where men have thrown acid on women , so have those men been arrested ??
    its way up time now that WOMEN should also do things like these & get away

    Who said that a man who through acid on woman face always runs from thin streets….1st it is unique case of Pakistan and also I think girl can’t go away from her home…a criminal who can do same thing with woman can think before how to escape.

    Also Madam Nabeela has not done any good work which we have to appreciate it.Girl accepted that her boyfriend Mohsin has did “sex” with her.So how an “INNOCENT” & “GOOD CHARACTER” girl can do same things.Islam did not allow boy & girl friendship.

    If Boy did same with Girl than Girl was nothing can do except crying on street but if Miss Nabeela got free from jail what the guy & his friend can do with her is a point of thinking.
