Two sisters are moderately injured, while one sister has acid on her face. However, the reason for throwing acid is unknown. Superintendent of Police (SP) of Gonda, Shailesh Kumar Pandey told media persons that the three girls have been attacked with some chemical and the whole matter is being investigated.
