Day after a man carried out acid attack on a girl in Kralgund area of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district, Handwara police on Wednesday arrested the accused who was absconding after committing the crime.

The incident occurred Tuesday afternoon when the girl was staying alone at her home. "The accused person barged into the house and after finding her alone sprinkled acid on her face. The girl somehow managed to shield her face with hands but despite that her right eye and face was blemished in the incident," said Muhammad Abbas, relative of the girl.
