SHEIKHUPURA: A domestic feud took an ugly turn when a man flung acid on his wife on Wednesday in the Ghang Road area of Sheikhupura.

A sub-engineer by profession, Muhammad Afzal, who was married to Sumaira, fled the scene after flinging acid on her, damaging the lower part of her body.

Sumaira’s sister, when contacted by Express News, said that the couple had been fighting for the past three days and that Afzal had locked Sumaira in the house.

The victim was moved to a nearby hospital for treatment, where doctors say that her condition is critical.

Hearing the news, Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif took notice of the incident and called for the immediate arrest of Afzal.

Why is acid not a controlled substance? It should be impossible to get without a valid reason.

Free sale of acid must be stopped and any body harming other should have most expeditious trial and conviction.
