VEHARI - A woman allegedly threw acid on her husband for contracting second marriage on Tuesday at Banglow Fazal Wah in Luddan police precincts, some 25-km from here.
Reports said 35-year-old Imran, a labourer, contracted second marriage with Asma of Gujranwala a few days back without getting permission from his first wife Yasmeen (30).
On Tuesday, when he visited Yasmeen at Luddan, she threw acid on Imran after an exchange of argument.
Imran received critical burns and was admitted to Nishter Hospital, Multan, for treatment.
Vehari Saddar DSP Imran Rasheed told Dawn that Imran received 40 per cent burns.
He said the family of the victim didn't want to get a case registered against her.
He said: "Imran had married Yasmeen 12 years ago and he is the father of 10-year-old daughter Alisha."
