Lahore, Sept 26: A Pakistani court has given a life sentence to a man for attacking a 13-year-old girl with acid in Punjab province.
The district and sessions judge in Muzaffargarh also imposed a fine of Rs 1.2 million on Farooq Shah. He said Rs 1 million of this amount should be given to the victim. During proceedings yesterday, the judge further ordered the sale of the convict's property for payment of the compensation and fine.
Shah, 25, threw acid on the girl after she reportedly resisted his attempts to rape her. The girl suffered burns on her face and neck.
A case was registered against Shah in April in Muzaffargarh district, 400 km from Lahore, the capital of Punjab.
