16-year-old girl burns boy’s face with acid after he turned down her sexual advances (Photos)

The boy was permanently scarred for life for refusing the advances of the underage girl

Pictures show Mahmudul Hasan Maruf, 17, from Dhaka, Bangladesh, lying in a hospital bed after the attack. His horrific facial injuries as a result of the attack can clearly be seen, with his skin red raw and peeling.

Romance

According to reports, the acid was thrown in his face by a 16-year-old girl whose romantic advances he had turned down. The girl and her mother have now both been arrested by police in Bangladesh.

Mahmadul’s mother joined him in hopsital, where he revealed the horrendous damage caused by the acid attack. He suffered most of the burns to his face, but also had injuries to his shoulder.

Confrontation

Local media reports the boy was on his way home from a night out with friends when he was confronted by the girl.

She had allegedly been chasing the teenager for months despite him repeatedly turning her down. After confronting him, she threw the corrosive liquid straight at his face.

Scarred

She was reportedly arrested a day later. Doctors say it is likely the boy will be scarred for life after entire layers of skin fell off his face.
