FAISALABAD: An anti-terrorism court in Faisalabad handed 34 years imprisonment to Rukhsana, a girl who flung acid on her ex-fiance's father after her engagement was called off by her in-laws.

Rukhsana, who had been arrested on November 10, 2010, was engaged to Shehzad and due to some unknown reasons, their engagement was broken by Shehzad’s family.

After some time, on the evening of Shehzad’s mehndi, Rukhsana reached his house in order to 'take revenge' and had a scuffle with his family.

Shehzad’s father Akhtar Razzaq tried to stop Rukhsana and in her defense, she flung acid on Razzaq’s face, leaving him blind in one eye.

Correction: The name of the girl had earlier been incorrectly stated in parts of the story. This has been fixed.

Injustice has been served!

OldPak | 9 years ago | Reply Nowhere in the world Acid is found in such pure & concentrated form at a local shop than in Pakistan. I wonder what they are cooking or cleaning that no place on earth uses it for? Neither the bomb-making Urea is readily available & sold in pure form anywhere but Pakistan. Also nowhere can you die from rat poison than in India & Pakistan. Even Clothes, curtains or tents don't catch fire as readily as in India & Pakistan.

What I am saying is at-least you can tie the camel before night falls.
