Ghaziabad: An unidentified woman threw acid on a veterinary doctor, injuring him critically, in Vaishali on Monday, police said.
According to the police, the woman barged into the residence of Amit Verma and threw acid on him while he was sleeping in his bedroom. The woman fled from the spot leaving the doctor crying for help.
The family members rushed him to Yashoda hospital where his condition is said to be critical.
"Verma shifted his clinic from Meerut to Vaishali about six months ago. He was running his clinic at his residence. The family members informed us that Verma had an affair with a woman who had joined his clinic on April 26, 2015," Circle Officer Atul Yadav said.
"She might be behind the attack, but we would be able to confirm her involvement only after the investigation," Yadav added.
