NELLORE: In a shocking incident, some unidentified person threw acid on a 24-year-old woman at Lalitha Apartments on Mandapala street here, late on Sunday night. According to III Town SI Nageswar Rao, Lalitha Jain (24) was residing in the ground floor of Lalitha apartments along with her mother and brother, after her father Parusuram Jain passed away recently.

She is engaged to one Kapil Jain from Guntur and the wedding was slated for April 16. She was betrothed a week ago and after the ritual, her mother had gone to Rajasthan to invite relatives and friends for the wedding, while Lalitha along with her 15-year-old brother Vikram was staying in the apartment.

Late on Sunday evening, two persons, reportedly a young man and a middle-aged-woman wearing masks came to the apartment and asked Lalitha to met them on the terrace of the apartment. When she reached there they threw acid on her and fled.

Lalitha, who suffered burn injuries on her right shoulder was immediately rushed to Ramachandra Reddy’s clinic, where she was provided first-aid, before being shifted to Narayana general hospital.

Her condition is stable, police said. On Monday the victim’s relatives from Guntur rushed to the hospital to take care of her. The victim told the police that she could not identify her attackers, as they were wearing masks. Cpps are baffled as to why Lalitha responded to the request of unknown people to met them on the terrace and that too during night time. A case has been registered and investigation is on.
