Woman allowed to blind attacker

Ameneh Bahrami was left blind and disfigured after Majid Movahedi threw sulphuric acid in her eyes at a bus stand after he had begged her in vain to marry him. She later underwent 19 operations following the attack, and the court awarded her £19,000 as compensation besides sending Majid to jail, but Ameneh turned down the compensation offer saying she wanted revenge.

She wanted her attacker to suffer the same anguish that she had undergone for over six years. “His mother phoned my parents. She asked for mercy. She said that Majid would always work for me if he could keep his eyes. But now it’s too late,” Daily Mail quoted her.

Ameneh said she also received death threats because of her determination to exact revenge.
