TUMAKURU: Two siblings were attacked with an acid-like substance by a group of unidentified teenagers while playing in a ground at Tiptur on Tuesday morning.

The victims are the children of solar equipment dealer Shivananda. Their mother Pushpa is a homemaker
A case has been registered and investigation is on. The attackers could be minors and search is on to nab them, Tiptur police inspector Deepak S N told The New Indian Express.
