Beltangady: Acid Attack on Youth for Objecting to Eve-teasing – Accused Absconds

Beltangady: Ashok, a resident of Ninnikallu in Laila village near here, became a victim of acid attack on Saturday.

Shaju, a rubber-tapper by profession, is said to have made it a habit to tease girls in the area. One of them happened to be a relative of Ashok’s.

He took Shaju to task and in retaliation, the latter is said to have splashed acid on Ashok. Since a certain acid is used in treating rubber latex after extraction, the same is suspected to have been used by the culprit.

Ashok has sustained severe burn injuries on his face and he has been admitted to a private hospital. DK superintendent of police Dr Sharanappa and Bantwal ASP Rahul Kumar visited the victim in the hospital.

Shaju, after the attack, left his mobile phone and two-wheeler behind and escaped. The police are looking for him.
