Pakistani Actress Burned With Acid For Refusing Marriage Proposal

Acid attacks aren't just a popular Islamic form of revenge, after all, Bolshoi Ballet's head Sergei Filin has been left almost blind by an acid attack that jealous company member Pavel Dmitrichenko set in motion; but they are more prolific and commonplace in countries like Pakistan.

And the Bolshoi acid attack isn't the only acid attack on someone in the entertainment industry.

A popular  young Pashto actress of TV/Film and Stage was attacked with acid by a married producer, Shaukat Khan, after she turned down his marriage proposal.

According to Pervez Khan, the brother of the 18-year-old victim, Bushra,

“A man climbed the wall of our house in the early hours, threw acid on my sister and fled."
Bushra was burned over 33 percent of her face and shoulders.
