Aurangabad: It seems that Bihar's law and order has taken a back seat in the state once again. A day after five men gang-raped a girl in Motihari district, another girl was attacked with acid here on Friday.
As per CNN-NEWS18, the victim has been referred to Gaya medical college in a very critical condition.
The 14-year-old girl and her mother today received burn injuries when allegedly a man threw acid on them at Rafigunj area in Bihar's Aurangabad district, the report added.
"The man had barged into the girl's house at Raja Nagar and threw acid at her apparently for rebuffing his advances and injured her grievously," Deputy Superintendent of Police P N Sahu said, as per PTI.
He further said, "Her mother, who was present at the spot, too sustained burn injuries as the acid sprinkled on her too. Her mother was admitted in a primary health centre at Rafiganj."
The cop further informed that the girl, a Class IX student, suffered severe injuries on her face and other parts of the body. The girl had yesterday rebuffed advances by the man when she was returning home from her tuition classes.
The attacker is absconding and a probe has been initiated, he added.
