New Delhi: A Delhi woman allegedly threw acid on her boyfriend to take revenge from him as he did not want to marry her, reported NDTV.

According to police, the woman was riding pillion on her boyfriend’s motorcycle when she asked him to take off his helmet as she was “unable to touch him properly”. Minutes later, she allegedly threw acid on him.
