Two days after a woman allegedly threw acid on her ‘boyfriend’ in Bijnor district, police are yet to make any arrests in the case. Afreen, 20, was reportedly angry with Suraj, 23, as he was getting engaged to another girl. So she allegedly called him to her house Sunday evening and threw acid on him, police said.

The incident took place at Inampura village in Mandawar police station area of Bijnor district. Suraj, who works in a private firm at Haridwar in Uttarakhand, sustained 50 per cent burns on his face and chest and was admitted in the district hospital. His condition was stable, doctors said. The police recorded his statement on Tuesday.

Suraj’s father Mahendra had got an FIR lodged against Afreen. Station Officer, Mandawar police station, Viresh Kumar said that in his statement, Suraj said that he and his friend Arjun had gone to Afreen’s house on her invitation. She reportedly called Suraj saying she would be celebrating her marriage.

“Suraj did not give all the information about his relationship with Afreen. He claims they studied together in the same college,” said Kumar. “We are verifying his statements and waiting for call records to find out about their relationship.”

Afreen is presently not at home, the SO said. “We have asked Afreen’s parents to bring her to police station to get her statement recorded.”
