A man threw acid on wife, as well as her two brothers and a sister-in-law, with acid over a family fight here in Faqirwali on Wednesday, police said.
The woman was living at her parents’ home after a dispute with her jobless husband Abbas.
When Abbas went to his in-laws to bring his wife and children back, another dispute arose following the woman’s refusal.
The refusal enraged the husband, after which he threw acid on his wife and mother-in-law while acid fell on the two children, who were sleeping by their mother. The suspect fled the scene after throwing acid on his family members.
All five of them were immediately shifted to a local hospital, as confirmed by the police official.
