Six arrested for acid attack on bride

Days after a man threw acid on a bride at a beauty parlour here, police arrested six persons, including a woman who masterminded the attack.

 Amitpal Kaur, the woman, Parvinder Singh alias Vicky, the attacker, and four of their accomplices were arrested in Patiala, Ludhiana Police Commissioner N S Dhillon said.
The commissioner said the bride was not the intended target of the act planned by Kaur, the divorced wife of the elder brother of the groom, seeking revenge on the groom’s family.

She was currently staying in Patiala where she had got married a second time with a UK-based NRI. She also has two children from her first marriage. He said. “Amitpal Kaur had entered into a deal of Rs 10 lakh with Parvinder Singh alias Vicky of Patiala to execute the acid attack. Vicky had been paid Rs 1.5 lakh as advance in instalments,” he said.

The victim, a resident of Barnala, had gone to the parlour in Sarabha Nagar in Ludhiana to get ready for her marriage when the young man barged in and threw acid on her.
