A 17-year-old girl in Delhi's Dwarka area has been hospitalised with serious injuries after two bike-borne men threw acid on her on Wednesday morning. The girl has been admitted to Safdarjung Hospital.

The girl's father said that her condition is critical and that the chemical splashed across her face and also entered her eyes, sources reported. One of the alleged culprits has been detained, police said.

Expressing concern over the incident, Delhi Women's Commission chief Swati Maliwal questioned why the sale of acid cannot be restricted yet.

Maliwal demanded justice for the girl and criticised the government for not being able to enforce the ban on over-the-counter sale of acid in the country.
