A 30-year-old woman suffered minor burns when diluted acid kept in a can fell on her while she was resisting an alleged sexual assault on her by two persons in Hyderabad, police said on Monday.
The woman, who works as a labourer at Pot Market in Secunderabad, complained of being molested by construction workers Shankar and Upender at a store-room here, they said.
The victim, who filed a police complaint, alleged that on June 20 the duo misbehaved with her. She thwarted their attempt to sexually assault her, but in the process suffered minor burns on her face when diluted acid kept in a can in the store-room fell on her, a police officer said.
Police have arrested Shankar and Upender and registered a case against them under relevant sections of IPC. Further investigations were on.
