Acid attack victim dies
Pakistani police say a man whose girlfriend threw acid on him for refusing to marry her has died of his wounds at hospital. Local police official Bashir Ahmed said 22-year-old Sadaqat Ali died at a government hospital in the city of Multan in central Punjab province yesterday. Ali was brought to the hospital last week after 32-year-old Monil Mai threw acid on him when he was visiting her home in the city’s Mukhdoom Rashid neighbourhood. She had been having an affair with Ali for several years. Mai was arrested by police hours after the attack and authorities have now registered a murder case against her.
