Karnataka: Woman gets five-year jail for pouring hot oil on girls in Kalaburagi | Hubballi News – Times of India


KALABURAGI: A Kalaburagi court on Thursday sent a 40-year-old woman to five years in jail and slapped a Rs 2 lakh penalty on her for pouring hot oil on two young girls over a trivial dispute with neighbours over two years ago.
The first additional district sessions court said the convicted woman will spend one more year in jail if she failed to pay the penalty. Of the fine amount, Rs 1.5 lakh will be deposited in a bank until the victims turn 18.
The convict, Shridevi Sampathrao Korwar, and her immediate neighbours frequently quarreled over a fourinch land used for building a compound. On March 25, 2019, she allegedly lured the girls (a three-year-old and a ten-yearold) with a chocolate into her house and poured boiled oil on them. The child suffered injuries on the forehead, head, hands, legs and shoulder; the other girl injured her face, fingers, legs and thigh. Parents spent nearly Rs 20 lakh on their treatment.
The court told the victims’ parents to get claim of money spent on treatment by submitting bills to District Legal Aid Service Authority.
