Mumbai, Apr 13 (UNI) Police have gathered enough evidence against the girl, accused of masterminding an acid attack on her boyfriend on March 28, a senior police inspector of crime branch CID said today.

Mr Uday Singh Rathod, who is heading the probe, told UNI that the police had recorded the statement of the witnesses and the accused.

He said the police had collected concrete evidence against Gwendolyn Narohna, a student of St Andrews College.

Gwendolyn was arrested on April 5 after her anticipatory bail plea was rejected by a sessions court, he said, adding her interrogation and two of her friends Saby Abraham and Keyur Patel, Gwendolyn's associates in hatching the plot, revealed certain vital evidence, which would be sufficient for any court of law to convict them.

''We have recorded the statement of a shopkeeper from Valsad in Gujarat, who had sold Nitric Acid to Abraham. Abraham also confessed that he had purchased the acid and ploted at the behest of the girl,'' Mr Rathod informed.

Even the mobile record of the trio, checked with the latest technology, also proved that they were involved in the crime, Mr Rathod revealed.

Besides her involvement in masterminding the attack, Gwendolyn was also charged with attempting a suicide, after she had cut her wrist last week while the court was hearing her anticipatory bail plea.

After her bail plea was rejected, Gwendolyn taken to a hospital.

She was brought to the court on the first day of the remand from the hospital. Later on, she was lodged at the Arthur road police lockup.

On March 28, the police arrested Gwendolyn's two friends who had hurled acid on Vivek Patel, the girl's ex-boyfriend, from her collage.

She was earlier granted interim relief, as the court had directed the police not to arrest her till April 4. However, the plea was rejected on the same day and she was taken into custody.

All the three will be produced before a local court on April 16.
