Teacher spurns marriage proposal, suffers acid attack

A 24-year-old nursery school teacher suffered severe burns in the face when a 32-year-old man threw a container of concentrated acid on her at Parraypora, on the Srinagar-Airport Road on Wednesday.

Srinagar Senior Superintendent of Police Ashiq Bukhari told The Hindu that the audacious attack on a woman occurred for the first time in the capital city in the last three years. He said two men, Riyaz Ahmed Nath and Junaid Khan alias Mudassar, both residents of Chhanpora, intercepted the teacher at the tuition hub of Parraypora. After an altercation with the woman, Riyaz Nath hurled the acid on her and the two fled the scene.
