Pictures tell the Horrific Story 

  • Former Pakistani dancing girl commits suicide 12 years after horrific acid attack which left her looking ‘not human’
  • Fakhra Younus said ‘My face is a prison’ after attack which melted her nose
  • She had undergone 39 separate surgeries to repair damage
  • Leapt to her death from sixth floor Rome building earlier this month
  • Her ex-husband was charged with attempted murder in 2002 but has since been acquitted

Life-changing: Fakhra Younus, pictured left before the horrific acid attack in May 2000, was left heavily facially disfigured after having acid thrown in her face

Cleared: Younus’s ex-husband Bilal Khar, the son of a wealthy Pakistani governor, was cleared in 2003 of charges relating to the attack

The mother-of-one moved to Italy after the incident to live in Rome and continue her treatment.

But on March 17 she took her own life, after leaving a message saying she was committing suicide over the silence of law on the atrocities and the insensitivity of Pakistani rulers.
