Visakhapatnam: Woman held for acid attack on 74-year-old

Visakhapatnam: The MVP Colony police on Tuesday arrested a woman, working as a domestic help for throwing acid on a 74-year-old woman, P. Satyavathi, and attempting to snatch her gold chain at Sector-2 of MVP Colony in the city.

The arrested has been indented as K. Ramanamma, a resident of Arilova area in Vizag city. The woman has been working as a maid in an art gallery at MVP Colony for six years.





Expressing shock over the incident, the police said that acid attack need not be for spurned love alone; the recent attack had revealed that acid attack can also be made for thefts as well. The police said that the victim Satyavathi is the wife of retired judge Mr P. Rama Rao and the couple had been living in MVP Colony for the past one decade. Their sons live abroad.

The art gallery is located in front of their house. Noticing that Rama Rao used to go for an evening walk regularly, Ramana-mma on Monday evening entered Satyavathi’s home, took the acid bottle (used for toilet cleaning) and threw the acid on the old woman's face and attempted to sna-tch a gold chain from her.

When Satyavathi raised an alarm after the sudden incident, neighbours rush-ed to the spot and apprehended Ramanamma, 35, and alerted the cops.

Sub-Inspector (Crimes) K. Govinda Rao said Satya-vathi was admitted to a private hospital where her condition was said to be stable.
