Woman throws acid on ex-lover in Guntur, kills him
HYDERABAD: A woman threw acid on her former lover, who married another girl in Venigandla of Guntur district, on Tuesday. The person, who suffered severe acid burns, died while being treated at the Guntur Government General Hospital.
Iliyas of Pamulapadu village in Tadikonda mandal in Guntur district and Hima Bindu of Venigandla village were in a relationship for over four years.
Bindu was pursuing her pharmacy course in a private college. Ilyas and Bindu were said to be friends from degree days.
Things went wrong when Iliyas got married to another woman on Tuesday. An infuriated Hima Bindu then called Iliyas to meet her on the pretext of settling the matter once and for all. When Iliyas met Hima Bindu, she poured acid on his face for cheating her. Kakani police registered a case and took up an investigation. Hima Bindu is at large.
Mangalagiri CI Brahmaiah said two police teams were pressed into action to nab the girl. There are unconfirmed reports that the girl and two men, who helped her, have been taken into custody.
Ilyas’ family members said they were not aware of his affair with Bindu till she had approached his elder brother Allabakshu on Sunday, a day before the marriage, questioning about her future.
“I begged her to spare Ilyas as we never knew about it. She promised me that she would not disturb the wedding. Accordingly, there was no call or any other attempt to create any disturbance in the function on Monday. But, she took her revenge the very next day, rendering the new bride a widow,” said a weeping Allabakshu, who is a mechanic.
