A couple was seriously injured in an acid attack by another couple during a heated row over an old property dispute, the police said on Sunday.
Sanjay Singh (37) and Mona Singh (35) were allegedly attacked by Rajkumar and Radha at Shabri Nagar on Saturday.
The victims, who sustained severe burn injuries on the face and hands, have been admitted to the Government Hamidia Hospital, Chhola Police Station in-charge Mohan Sarwan said. The accused have been arrested.
Rajkumar had claimed that the house in which both the couples lived was owned by him and he wanted to drive out tenant Sanjay and his family. However, he failed to produce proper documents to substantiate his claim, Mr. Sarwan added. Rajkumar, who works at a jewellery shop, used concentrated acid meant to clean jewellery to attack the couple. — PTI
