Acid at­tack

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - EDUCATION -

Crime hit a new low in the town when two girls and a man were in­jured in an acid at­tack in Ba­longi this year. One of the girls later suc­cumbed to her in­juries. The two girls, Swatika and She­fali, were with their em­ployer Rakesh Ku­mar, the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of an im­mi­gra­tion firm in Phase 1, when they were at­tacked by two youths rid­ing a mo­tor­cy­cle in Daun vil­lage near here. Swatika suf­fered 80 % burn in­juries and died. Her brother Prashant, who do­nated his skin for graft­ing to save Swatika, is still in a hos­pi­tal. The crime, the po­lice sus­pect, was com­mit­ted in a fit of rage.
