LAHORE:


Khalida Parveen paid a heavy price for bruising a man’s ego – she was doused in acid for rejecting one Nayyar Abbas’ marriage proposal.


With severe burns on her face and body, the special education teacher’s life hangs by a thread.

The incident took place in the Satellite Town area of Jhang district, where accused Abbas poured acid on Khalida when she was on her way back from her work, police officials said.

Khalida, who teaches hearing impaired and blind children, was shifted to the hospital in critical condition.

According to the police, Abbas has been arrested.

A case was registered against Abbas on the complaint of Khalida at the Satellite Town Police Station on Friday.
