In an unusual incident, a disgruntled wife threw acid on her husband, leaving him blind in one eye.

In this harrowing act which took place on March 30, the woman Sabra was not alone. Sabra’s accomplice, her former husband Talib, helped her to pour chemical over her husband, Mohammad Noman at his house in Surjani Town on Wednesday. The Surjani police captured the two perpetrators from Talib’s house in Hyderi, following an FIR lodged by Noman’s brother.

According to the police, Sabra had left her husband’s house, and was living with her former husband. She was not keen on returning home and therefore involved her ex-husband to throw hazardous substance on Noman, to silence his pleas for homecoming.

Noman is currently undergoing treatment at the Burns Centre of Civil hospital. According to Dr Shahid, the Registrar at the Burns Centre, the acid victim has suffered 22% burns.

    Badly written article – does not describe if she was divorced from either of the husbands. It also seems confusing to figure out if she threw acid on the first husband or the second husband. ET please attend some classes for primary school English and 1st year Journalism.

    With such poor comprehension skills one shouldn’t be that blunt in adding his/her two cents.

    Sabra’s accomplice, her former husband
    Talib, helped her to pour chemical
    over her husband

    Furthermore, if Talib was her “former” husband then obviously she was divorced. She poured chemical on her current husband taking help of her ex.
