20-year-old woman miraculously escapes acid attack

Police said that the victim escaped from any major burn injuries in the attack as the culprits missed the target.

A 20-year-old woman miraculously escaped major injuries after two motorcycle-borne assailants threw acid on her in Delhi, police said on Friday. The bikers, who were masked, threw acid on the woman in east Delhi's GTB Enclave area on Wednesday evening when she was returning from a factory where she works as a labourer.

"Fortunately the victim escaped from any major burn injuries in the attack as the culprits missed the target. Only two or three drops of acid fell on her right hand," said a police officer. The reason for the attack was not known.

The assailants fled after the attack, added the officer.
