The name of the person has been identified as Preeti Rathi, 23 who is a resident of Delhi. In 2013, he started working as a nurse at a naval hospital in Mumbai.
After reaching to Mumbai through train with her father, a man tapped her on the shoulder and flung acid at her.
The name of the accused is Ankur Panwar, resident of Delhi. When police came to know about the incident, he arrested the accused.
The police said, “He was jealous of her success and frustrated by his family goading him about being unemployed while lauding Ms Rathi as a success. So he allegedly took the same train to Mumbai that the Rathis were on, attacked the young woman, and then boarded another train departing Mumbai.”
"Preeti had told her friend in hospital that Ankur used to harass her in Delhi and even tried to propose marriage to her. When she refused his advances, that's when he decided to teach her a lesson," said special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam. He added that, "I will ask for the maximum sentence, that's the death penalty."
Ms Rathi was in basic condition in healing facility for about a month prior to she kicked the bucket of her wounds from the corrosive assault. Parts of her throat had been smoldered. Her lungs were extremely harmed.
The police said Mr Panwar needed to "ruin Preeti so she could never land a position again."
Amar Singh Rathi, who headed out to Mumbai for the decision in his little girl's case, told NDTV, "I need him to endure till the end simply like my little girl did. On the off chance that he is given a lighter sentence, it won't send the right message."
India has one of the most astounding rates of corrosive viciousness on the planet. Of 1,500 recorded corrosive assaults every year over the world, more than 1,000 cases assessed to happen in India alone.
India made corrosive assaults a particular criminal offense in 2013. Corrosive remains effectively accessible regardless of a 2013 Supreme Court request to check deals.
