A 17-year-old girl was walking to school with her younger sister when she was attacked with an acid-like substance by two bike-riding men near her home in Delhi’s Dwarka neighborhood on Wednesday morning. According to the police, the incident occurred around 7.30 a.m. and was reported to them around 9 a.m.

A CCTV camera in the area captured shocking footage of the incident. The footage shows two girls walking by the side of the road when a bike slows down and one of the riders throws a liquid substance from a glass at the 17-year-old. She is then seen running and holding her face, clearly in pain. According to witnesses, the girl ran to a neighbour who assisted her in washing the chemical off her face.

“My two daughters, ages 17 and 13, were out together this morning. Two men on a bike suddenly threw acid at my older daughter and drove away. They had their faces covered “The girl’s father told the media about it.

When asked if his daughter had reported any harassment, her father replied, “She did not, in fact. I would have accompanied her everywhere if she had. The sisters would take the Metro to school together.”

 

The girl was taken to Safdarjung Hospital.

“She has suffered 7-8 per cent facial burns and her eyes have also been affected. She is being questioned. “She’s been admitted to the burn ICU and is doing well,” a doctor said.

According to police, one of the alleged perpetrators has been apprehended.


The girl has named two people she believes are responsible for the attack, one of whom has been detained by police, according to the DCP.

In a tweet, Delhi Commission for Women Chairperson Swati Maliwal demanded justice for the schoolgirl and chastised the government for failing to enforce the country’s ban on the sale of acid over the counter.
