In a bizarre incident, a jilted girl threw acid on her former lover, who reportedly married another girl in Venigandla of Guntur district on Tuesday night. The man, who suffered severe burns breathed his last in the Guntur Government General Hospital.
According to reports, Himabindu and Illyas were in a sexual relationship for over four years. But, recently the man married another girl. Himabindu, who was upset with the betrayal, lured him to come to one Arjun Rao’s house. She gained entry saying she was the sister of one Khasim, who is Arjun Rao’s friend. Illias went there from backdoor. However, a few moments later, Illyas came out running out of the house crying for help. The locals rushed him to the hospital, where he died later.
Himabindhu reportedly poured sulphuric acid into Iliyas’ mouth and threw it on his person. The girl fled the spot. She too reportedly suffered some burns while throwing acid but managed to flee from the spot. Mangalagiri CI Brahmaiah said two police teams were pressed into service to nab the girl. The girl and two men, who allegedly helped her, were taken into custody. (NSS)
