KANDHKOT: A man doused a fellow young man with acid after the latter allegedly turned down the former's offer of friendship here in the city's Munshi Muhabbat Khan Dahani village on Tuesday, a local police official confirmed.
According to the senior superintendent of police (SSP) for the Kashmore district, Syed Asad Raza Shah, the suspect — identified as Jamil Shah — threw acid on another man for denying his request of friendship. Jamil Shah was later arrested, the SSP added.
The young man who was attacked sustained burn wounds on almost 40 percent of his body, sources at a local hospital noted, and was subsequently shifted from Kandhkot to Larkana.
Shah, the suspect, was displeased that his friendship offer was declined.
