The reason is said to be a property dispute and the man's wife and two brother-in-laws are allegedly involved in the plot.
The woman has suffered burns on the right side of her face and chest, her husband told ANI. "I run a bangle shop in the main market. During evenings, my wife comes to the market to take money from me to buy vegetables. She did not come yesterday so I went to check. Unable to find her on the way, I returned."
"After some time, a neighbour came to inform that someone has thrown acid on her face and she is lying on the road." He rushed to find that a police vehicle was there and a lot of people had gathered around her. She was immediately taken to Sanjay Gandhi hospital in Mangolpuri," he added.
The incident is the result of a family and property dispute, the husband alleged, adding that his brother has been threatening to harm his family since a long time. The matter has been reported to the police. The police is on a lookout for the attacker who is currently absconding.
