Jilted lover allegedly splashed acid on a woman here Friday after she turned down his marriage proposal.

The 32-year-old woman, who is divorced with three children, sustained injuries in her right eye and is being treated at a private hospital, police said.

"She is out of danger. Her eyesight has been partially restored too. We hope she recovers fully soon," said Harish Pandey, DCP South.
