Kendrapara: A 22-year old girl suffered serious burn injuries when an unidentified man threw acid on her on late Thursday night at Naupada village under Rajnagar police station in Kendrapara district.
 
The victim was shifted to SCB medical college and hospital in Cuttack and admitted to the casualty department. She was later shifted to special burn ward as her condition deteriorated, doctors said. At least 40 per cent of her body has been burnt, they added.
