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.
Ahmed, 36, the accused, was arrested soon after the incident.
According to the police, the two had known each other for nearly three years and used to work together in a factory.
For the last few months, Ahmed had been pestering the woman, who is from his own community, to marry him.
