The family also alleged that the constable’s in-laws were unhappy about her giving birth to a girl child.

An RPF constable was seriously injured when her husband allegedly threw acid on her for giving birth to a girl child and not fulfilling dowry demands in Chandaura village in Muzaffarnagar, police said on Sunday.

Komal, who was posted at Delhi, was living with her parents in Muzaffarnagar after a dispute with her husband Kapil Kumar, who works in a private firm in the national capital, circle officer SKS Pratap said.

Kumar came to her parents house to meet her on Saturday. But after an argument threw acid on her and escaped, he said.

Komal was rushed to a hospital with burn injuries, Pratap said.

Her condition is stated to be serious.

The woman’s family alleged that Komal’s husband and in-laws had been harassing her for dowry since their marriage in 2013. They were also unhappy that she gave birth to a girl child in 2016, the officer added.

On the basis of their complaint, a case has been registered and police have launched a manhunt to nab her husband who is absconding, the police officer said.
