NEW DELHI: A 30-year-old woman suffered severe burns when two bike-borne men threw acid on her in North West Delhi's Keshav Puram area here this evening.    

Police have arrested one of the accused. He has been identified as Manjeet, the woman's landlord.      

The incident took place around 8:30 PM when the woman, who worked at a nearby factory, was returning home. The accused on a bike threw the acid and fled away.              

"Locals rushed her to a nearby hospital where doctors treating her said she has suffered severe burns on the right side of her face which has also partially damaged her eye," said a police officer.              

Manjeet initially tried to dodge police during questioning but later confessed to the crime. "He claimed that the two were in a relationship but things turned sour over something following which he decided to teach her a lesson," he said.        

A case for attack using acid has been registered against him and efforts are on to nab his associate, police said.
