Wife set on fire after acid attack by husband and in-laws

By Khadijah Shah

Gujranwala, Pakistan: In the limits of Sadar Police station a husband sprayed acid on his wife’s face and than sprinkled petrol on her body and set her on fire, causing her death.

Sameena Masih 26, resident of Pasroor was tied in the knot of holy matrimony with Yuel Masih a resident of Marriam Sadiq Town in the limits of Sadar Police. Their union could not produce off spring even after 3 years; this caused frequent wrangles between the couple.

On the day of the incident during an exchange of hot words with Sameena Masih, Yuel Masih became so furious that he with the help of his brother Daud Masih, a sister and his mother hurled acid on her
face and than sprayed her body with petrol and set her on fire.

He took Sameena to CMH (combined military hospital) after doing this heinous crime. He also informed Sameena’s parents that her clothes caught fire while she was working in the kitchen.

When Sameena’s brother Sarfraz reached CMH all the family members of Yuel Masih ran away from the hospital. Doctors informed Sarfraz that acid was poured in in Sameena’s mouth that burnt her tongue, teeth and lips, causing her death.

Adil Masih, cousin of Sameena said that six months ago she was pregnant but unfortunately in a quarrel with Yuel Masih, she was subjected to physical torture which caused miscarriage and permanent loss of conceiving ability.

Sadar Police has registered the case.
