Kanpur: A jilted lover enraged by his
girlfriend`s refusal to marry him allegedly threw acid on her, injuring her seriously.

The girl used to run a pan masala stall to support herself and her younger brother after her parents died.
The incident took place at the busy Birhana road area here last night when Sameer, a resident of Kuti Mall, along
with his friend came on a motorbike and threw acid on the
16-year-old girl, police said.

The victim was rushed to a hospital with severe burns on
her hand and chest, they said.

The girl and Samir had been friends for a year. Samir
wanted to marry her but she had refused his proposal following
which he was upset. The girl`s grandfather had even fixed her
marriage elsewhere angering him further.

A case has been registered and a search is on to nab
Samir, they said.
