Raikot, October 11

The Sadar police, Raikot, have booked four persons, including three members of a family, under Sections 326 A and 149 of the IPC for an alleged acid attack on a elderly man of Noorpura Patti, near here, on Sunday.

The accused have been identified as Jagjit Singh of Noorpura, his sons Bhola Singh and Kaali Singh, and Pritam Singh.

The victim has been identified as Charan Singh. Old rivalry over financial matter was cited to be reason behind the attack.

Charan Singh alleged that the accused had allegedly attempted to throw acid on his face when he was going to a gurdwara on Sunday.

Though the accused had tried to throw acid on the face of the victim when he was riding a bicycle with spray bottles, he managed to avoid that. However, the accused, who were already standing in two groups, succeeded in throwing acid on the back of Charan Singh. Charan Singh was admitted to Civil Hospital at Raikot with severe burn injuries.

The SHO, Sadar police station, Raikot, Gagandeep Singh, said the four assailants were booked under Sections 326 A and 149 of the IPC and would be soon arrested.
