Man pours acid on his wife
South Africa – A 44-year-old Soweto man was arrested after allegedly pouring acid over his wife on Thursday, Gauteng police said.
The woman, 42, was rushed to a local hospital in a critical condition after she sustained serious injuries to her face, breast and legs, said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubele.
“It happened at the home in Soweto which the couple used to share before they were separated.”
