Not much information made available till the evening on this matter but according to the little available information, this incident took place out of the enmity amongst the neighbors over the dispute of access road to the property. The father of the victim girl told the police that, his neighbors had threatened them few days back with the dire consequences. Based on the tip Mapusa police arrested two persons from the neighborhood of the victim.


Tourism minister and Saligao legislature Dilip Parulekar paid the visit to the victim at the district hospital and he instructed the police to take up the matter on the priority basis. The face of the victim has got burnt in the acid attack but her eyes are saved said the hospital sources.

Acid attack is becoming the weapon of taking revenge in the northern India and the same trend is now seems to be catching up in our beautiful and peaceful Goa claimed the sources.

The above case needed to be dealt with the iron hand to make sure that such kinds of incidents are not attempted by the others.

There is a need of strict law in this so that such incidents are not repeated in the place like Goa. do you have any suggestions on this serious issue kindly share with us.
