An Indian boy allegedly threw boiling water on a teen girl's face because she unfriended him on Facebook.

After coming to the girl’s house in the Gannipur locality in Muzaffarpur last week under the guise that he was searching for his identity card, left behind during a tutoring session, the teen allegedly shoved the girl’s mother out of the way and dumped hot water on the girl's face.


Following the incident, the 15-year-old girl was treated for burns across 20 percent of her face. After being hospitalized for treatment, her condition was stabilized and she is expected to recover.

The alleged assailant, Yudhisthir Yadav, is an undergraduate student at a government college in Muzaffarpur.

"My father is a teacher and he (the accused) used to come for tuitions to our home. I accepted his friend request a year ago because I found him decent then," the girl said. "But of late he had become abusive and so I ‘unfriended’ him last week.”

Police are still searching for Yadav.
