The other injured are Ujama’s parents Nisar (50) and Maskeen (43) and sisters Gulista (21), Nisha (16) and Tarannum (22), who have suffered 25-40 per cent burns. All have been admitted to the Medical College.

A resident of Kharkhada village in Meerut, Sajid had married Ujma around two years ago, but she had been staying with her parents for the last two months following fights with her husband.

Circle Officer Rupesh Singh said Nisar, a rickshaw puller, told the police that he had sold his house for Rs 4.5 lakh around eight months ago.

Sajid was forcing Nisar to give him Rs 50,000 to start a business, but he refused. Following this Sajid started harassing Ujma, following which she returned to her parents house, the complaint said.

SHO, Lisarigate police station, Ranveer Singh Yadav said, Nisar alleged in his complaint that while his family was asleep on the terrace when Sajid and his two brothers scaled the boundary wall and threw acid on them.

At around 2.56 am a local resident called the PCR and informed them about the incident.  A police team rushed to the spot and took them to the hospital.

A manhunt has been launched to arrest Sajid.

    "SHO, Lisarigate police station, Ranveer Singh Yadav said, Nisar alleged in his complaint that while his family was asleep on the terrace when Sajid and his two brothers scaled the boundary wall and threw acid on them." Q1: When Nissar was sleeping how did he know definately who attackers were ? Q2: How were attackers able to flee after this incident ? Surely neighbors would also be sleeping on terace as its quite hot and its normal for people to sleep outside...How come after hearing commotions neighbors couldn't nab atleast 1 attacker ? Q3: What would this alleged attacker son-in-law gain by throwing acid ? other than escalate charges on himself ?
