In a shocking incident reported from Madhya Pradesh, a woman in her early twenties threw acid on the face of a 30-year-old man inside a train near Ganj Basoda railway station. The crime took place in MP’s Vidisha district, around 100km from Bhopal, on Monday night.
Sachin Sahu (victim) is a resident of Bhopal who was was travelling by the Vindhyachal Express when it halted at an outer signal while approaching Ganj Basoda railway station around 8.30pm. Sahu regularly takes the train as he works in Vidisha, 50km from Ganj Basoda, reported TOI.
On Monday, Sachin was travelling in D4 coach, waiting for the train to start moving again when acid was thrown on his face. It happened so quickly that his co-passengers didn’t realise anything amiss until Sahu started screaming in pain and fumes were seen coming off his skin. They tried to help him anyway they could.
Sachin was badly burned. The attacker hasn’t been identified yet, nor is the motive known.
Bhopal GRP SP Hitesh Chowdhary informed media,
He has sustained injuries on his face and hands as he tried to wipe his face. As of now, the victim had not taken any names. He is out of danger. All he says is that it was a woman, it happened so fast that he could not identify her. His family members have not taken any names, either.
Police are talking to Sahu’s co-passengers to see if they can give a clue or a description of the attacker. They are checking if the victim had a dispute with anyone.
