On February 28, our mother brand, Dainik Bhaskar, had reported of a case of acid attack being registered in Meerut. The acid attack which allegedly had taken place in Paith Bazaar on two sportswomen - Shalu and Garima - had the police running helter-skelter for clues against the woman they accused.
However, the case has now seen a new twist. According to police, no such attack had taken occured in the first place. Shalu and Garima, both in their early twenties, had faked the attack to frame the third woman with whom they had enmity with.
Garima, 21 is a boxer, while 20-year-old Shalu is a wrestler. Both were going to practice at the sports stadium early in the morning, when the attack took place, they had told police.
