Shocking Acid Attack Video was captured by a CCTV camera in the area.
The video shows the two girls walking by the roadside when a bike slows down and one of the riders throw a liquid substance from a glass at the 17-year-old.
The girl is seen holding her face and running, clearly in extreme pain. Eyewitnesses said the girl ran to a neighbor who helped wash the chemical off her face.
“My daughters, one aged 17 and the other 13, were out together this morning. Suddenly, two men on a bike threw acid at my elder daughter and drove away. They had covered their faces,” the girl’s father told the media.
On being asked if his daughter had complained about harassment by anyone, her father said, “No, she did not. If she had, I would have accompanied her everywhere. The sisters would travel to school together in Metro.”
NDTV also spoke to the girl’s mother. She too said that the teenager had not spoken at home about anyone disturbing her.
The teenager has been hospitalized at Safdarjung Hospital. She has suffered 8 percent burns, Dr. BL Sherwal from the hospital told NDTV. “How deep the burns are would be known between 48-72 hours of the injury. Her condition is currently stable.”
Senior police officer M Harsh Vardhan said the police have arrested one suspect and is looking for the other. Multiple teams have been formed to track him down, he said.
