MULTAN: A 36-year-old woman attacked on Thursday a man with acid for declining her marriage proposal in Multan.

According to police sources, Shamim, resident of Moza Gharyal in Multan district's Makhdoom Rasheed area, threw acid on Sadaqat, 24, after he refused to marry her. Sadaqat has been shifted to Nishtar Hospital Multan for treatment.

Sources at the hospital said Sadaqat has received 60 per cent burns due to which the next 24 hours are crucial for him.

Following the incident, police officials arrested Shamim who then confessed her crime. Reports revealed that the two were having an affair for over a year.

"Sadaqat promised me he will marry me and we had planned that I would divorce my husband and leave my children with him, after which Sadaqat would marry me," Shamim told the police.

"We were arguing since over a month and his constant refusal to marry me infuriated me as a result of which I threw acid on him," she added.

Man, woman allegedly killed over affair

Meanwhile, the victim's brother, Sharafat, told The Express Tribune that Sadaqat was engaged to his cousin and were going to get married after Eid.

Denying Sadaqat's relationship with the mother of four, Sharafat said, "My brother was innocent, he was a shy boy and used to avoid ladies."

"The woman is accusing my brother for something he did not do, she was the one who kept approaching Sadaqat to marry her," he added.

Police officials registered a case at Makhdoom Rasheed Police station against Shamim, while further investigation is underway.

Reda | 4 years ago | Reply | Recommend I dont get it. Wen a female throws acid on a man, it suddenly becomes an issue of how feminists r unjust in promoting their agenda but wen a man burns a girl for the same reason (like the incident in murree) no body cries foul and blame the rest of male population of being violent? I seriously dont get the connection between this article and feminism.
Mehreen | 4 years ago | Reply | Recommend @Disgusting: "looks like FATA".........?? Do you know a single case of so, by your own..... they are all rumors spread in the air about the tribal areas. Juz once take time and visit a tribal area, they respect their females, treat their women so better. Yes no doubt they are strict but doesn't mean they violates everywhere...... With respect.
