Mumbai: A 25-year-old girl lost her vision in one eye and her face was disfigured after an unidentified man threw an acid-like liquid on her face at the Bandra railway terminus platform on Thursday, the police said.
The accused targeted Preeti Rathi after she, along with her father Amarsingh (55), her uncle Vinodkumar Dahiya, and her aunt Sunita, got down from the Delhi-Bandra Garib Rath train at platform number three at around 8 am in the morning, the police said.
The accused had covered his face with a handkerchief, they said.
"Preeti Rathi had come to the city to join the Armed Medical College's INS Ashwini Hospital as a nursing lieutenant. After they got down from the train, the accused followed her and patted her shoulder. The moment she turned, he threw the liquid on her face which injured her badly and fled the spot," a Bandra railway police officer said.
The police have prepared a sketch of the suspect as per her family members' description and are scanning the train's passengers list to zero in on him, the police said.
