Today in Basit Panchait vegetable market two Christian women and a teenager sustained severe burn injuries after being sprayed with acid.

28 year old Rimsha Masih and 16 year old Hinah Masih were taken to Lady Hospital near the crime scene. They were later shifted to Provincial Sandeman Hospital but due to inadequate facilities had to be taken to Bolan Medical College Teaching Hospital.

MPA Asiya Nisar condemned the attack saying, “I strongly condemn the brutal act of throwing acid on a Christian mother and daughter in Quetta, whoever found guilty should be punished.”

The Quetta police have confirmed that the women have sustained severe burn injuries and they have nominated Vijay Masih for the crime. Vijay is a resident of Brewery road and is also Christian.

Doctors have confirmed that the women are under medical supervision.

Last year at least four women were sprayed with an acid-filled syringe in different parts of Balochistan.
