ALLAHABAD: An 18-year-old man, whose attempt to rape a 16-year-old girl was thwarted recently, came back with vengeance and threw acid on the girl in the trans-Yamuna area of Allahabad district on Monday.
The man, identified as Manjoo, has been arrested and sent to jail. Police said the accused threw acid on the girl at Bhita village under Ghoorpur police station in the wee hours of Monday. "The accused managed to enter the house of the victim at around 1.30am while the family was asleep. He then threw acid on the girl, resulting in burn injuries on her face and hands," the police said.

As the girl shrieked, her family members rushed to her and found her in a semi-conscious condition. She was rushed to the SRN Hospital, where her condition is "serious".
Station Officer, Ghoorpur, JP Rai told TOI: "The police have arrested the accused. He had earlier made an abortive attempt to outrage the modesty of the girl but the villagers had sorted out the issue through the village panchayat."
He added that the girl, a student of Class IX, was admitted to the emergency ward of the hospital. Locals said the accused had been harassing the girl for a long time but the police had not taken any action.
