Man pours acid on his wife while she was asleep because she gave birth to only girls
A man poured acid all over his wife, on International Women’s Day, after she gave birth to a baby girl in Moradabad, in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
The victim identified as Farah Biwi (25) suffered burns injuries to her face, hands and stomach after her husband, Siraj Biwi (32) allegedly threw acid over her.
The couple who were married for eight years have two children together, both girls.
Police are now searching for the alleged attacker and hope to arrest him for voluntarily causing grievous harm.
Meanwhile, Farah is being treated in hospital after the attack – said to be motivated by her ‘failure’ to produce a male child and fulfill a dowry.
