The woman’s 6-year-old son Faisal was also hit by the attack. Jalalpur Pirwala Sadar police arrested the accused Arshad son of Bilal through Interpol. One and a half years ago, in 2022, the accused threw acid on Hafiza Bibi with his accomplices in Kotla Chakar Deh. She later succumbed to her injuries.
