The prime accused in the Delhi acid attack incident, according to Delhi Police, purchased the substance online, revealing how the life-threatening acids are easily available despite a Supreme Court ban. The Delhi Commission for Women issued notices to two e-commerce companies on Thursday for allegedly allowing the sale of acid on their platform.
The motive for the Delhi Acid attack, according to the police, was ‘revenge,’ as the main accused, Sachin Arora (20), wanted to exact revenge on the minor girl for breaking off their friendship a few months ago. The victim showed no interest in speaking with Sachin after she ended her friendship with him.
Following that, the accused Sachin, along with his friends Virendra Singh (22) and Harshit Agarwal (19), planned to attack her with acid. As seen in the CCTV footage of the incident, the person riding the bike was Harshit and the one who threw the acid at the girl was Sachin. Later, Virendra stole Sachin’s phone and scooty, making it impossible for the police to track Sachin’s whereabouts.
