Pakistani Woman Throws Acid at Man Who Refused to Marry Her

Friday, 17 June 2016 05:19 AM

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Police in Pakistan say they have arrested a woman for allegedly throwing acid on a man who refused to marry her.

Local police official Bashir Ahmed said Friday the attack took place a day before, in the Mukhdoom Rashid neighborhood of Multan, a city in central Pakistan. Ahmed identified the woman as 32-year-old Monil Mai.

He says Mai was already married and wanted her boyfriend Sadaqat Ali to marry her so that she could divorce her husband. He says Ali is being treated in hospital in Multan, in Punjab province.

It is not uncommon for women in Pakistan to be victims of acid attacks and other so-called "honor crimes." It is rarer, however, for women to carry out such violence against men.
