With their vacation turning into a nightmare, the infant boy, his father Abdul Matin of Gabtoli village in Sonargaon, and his mother Razia Sultana have now found shelter in Acid Survivors Foundation in the capital.
“My baby is suffering for no fault. We didn’t have the slightest idea about the enmity between Mozammel and the attackers,” Sultana Razia, six percent of whose body including the face and lower abdomen was burnt with acid, told The Daily Star.
Recalling the incident, the 25-year-old mother said her husband, a furniture shop employee, had taken them to Mozammel’s house on Thursday.
The three went to sleep in the same room on Monday night with the door open as the doors and windows of the house were being repaired.
“Suddenly, I felt something fell on me setting me on fire,” Sultana said, adding their baby also gave out a heart wrenching scream at the same time.
