[UPDATE: 19 Jan 2017, 3:30 PM IST- The Logical Indian spoke to the investigating officer. We were told that Lidiya is in custody until her next hearing which will be held next week. As for the reason for the attack, he said, “The victim, Jayakumar told the media that Lidiya attacked him for refusing to convert to Christianity, whereas Lidiya is saying that she was upset because he broke off the relationship, and it was not about any religious conversion.”]

Unable to bear rejection, a 26-year-old Bengaluru woman, throws acid on the face of her ex-boyfriend Jayakumar on Monday near RPC Layout in Bengaluru’s Vijayanagar area. The incident took place around 8.30 pm.

Apart from throwing acid, Lidiya S also tried to kill Jayakumar with a surgical knife after he chased and caught her. Jayakumar has now been admitted to a city hospital after he sustained severe burns on his face and chest and deep stab wounds on his face.

As per the reports of police, Lidiya carefully planned and was fully prepared to carry out the act.


How it happened

Lidiya, dressed entirely in black, rode a scooter concealing the number plate. She was also wearing a helmet that fully covered her face. She was following Jayakumar and his brother who were returning from a temple on a bike. She waited at the corner of a road, and as soon as Jayakumar slowed down to take a turn, she threw acid on him.

Despite the burning sensation on his face, Jayakumar chased Lidiya for a kilometre and finally caught her. When he tried to remove her helmet to find out who she was, Lidiya attacked him with the surgical knife she was carrying. Jayakumar and his brother caught hold of her and took her to Srirampuram Police Station. Citing jurisdictions, the Srirampuram police, however, transferred the case to Vijaynagar police for further investigations on Monday night. She was booked for attempt-to-murder (IPC 307).

The police told The Logical Indian that Lidiya works as a nurse in a private hospital and Jayakumar is a cloth merchant. They were in a relationship for ten years. However, they recently broke up. The reason was cited as ‘religion’ since both of them belonged to different faiths. Even after the breakup, Lidiya insisted that Jayakumar continues their relationship. When she found out that he was going to marry another woman, she was very upset and decided to attack him with acid.

The police also said that Lidiya was lodged at State Home for Women, and has been produced in court today. The verdict will be declared by today.
