Video: Kerala woman throws acid on boyfriend’s face for rejecting marriage proposal
A 35-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly throwing acid on her boyfriend after he rejected her marriage proposal. The incident took place at Adimali in Kerala’s Idukki district.
The victim, Arun Kumar (27), is a native of Poojappura in Thiruvananthapuram district. He met the accused, Sheeba, through social media and the two fell in love.
However, Arun decided to marry another girl, which fueled Sheeba’s resentment, according to the police.
On November 16, Sheeba called Arun Kumar near St Antony's Church at Irumpupalam near Adimali. The CCTV footage from the area shows the two talking before Arun walks some distance away. The video shows Sheeba walking towards him and attacking him with acid.
Arun Kumar reportedly lost sight in one of his eyes, while Sheeba’s face and arm were also seriously injured in the attack. Arun Kumar is undergoing treatment at Thiruvananthapuram Medical College Hospital.
Meanwhile, Sheeba was taken into custody by the Adimali police on Friday.
