Pregnant woman attacked with acid by in-laws

Hyderabad: In what can be called an inhuman act, a pregnant woman was attacked with acid by her in-laws in Vellore, Andhra Pradesh. As per reports, the victim Girija was attacked last month after an astrologer reportedly assured her mother-in-law that she was carrying a girl. 
 
As per police reports, the lady's mother-in-law and sister-in-law who had decided to kill their daughter-in-law, eventually threw acid on her stomach on August 19. 
 
On being attacked, Girija was rescued by the local people who rushed her to the hospital. The lady, however, sustained 30% burns and is yet to heal. 
 
The incident came to light after Girija registered a complaint on Monday. In her complaint she stated that her in-laws poured acid on her stomach which resulted in the burns. 
 
Police said that Girija's husband and in-laws are at present absconding.
