A man was arrested and charged with terrorism after he threw acid at his wife and son because she wanted a divorce.
The man is accused of burning his wife and her one-year-old, after she refused to return to his home in Punjab, Pakistan.
Police identified the man as Nasir.
His wife Sakina, had moved to her parents’ house a couple of months ago, after having arguments about their financial matters.
One day, Nasir went to his in-laws’ home in the Badami Bagh area and asked his wife to return home with him.
When she refused to do so, he threw acid on her and their one-year-old child.
Sakina’s brother and his wife were also hit with acid during the attack and suffered burns.
The injured were rushed to Mayo Hospital, and the child is said to be in critical condition.
Police have filed terrorism charges against Nasir.
