Suspecting his wife of having an illicit relation, a man allegedly threw acid on her face at Nalhati in Birbhum district, police said on Monday.

The incident occurred at Atkula village on Sunday night when Tarun Fulmali, who owns a small car repairing unit, allegedly threw acid on his wife Manjushri's face suspecting that she was having an illicit relation with a villager, they said.

Officer-in-charge of Nalhati police station, Somnath Bhattacharya, said 35-year-old Manjushri lodged an FIR blaming her husband for the incident.

Tarun, who surrendered before the police on Monday morning apparently to save himself from being assaulted by local people, denied that he had thrown acid on his wife.

Manjushri was first taken to Rampurhat Sub-divisional Hospital from where she was shifted to Burdwan Medical College Hospital, Bhattacharya said.

The couple have two sons and a daughter.
