According to details, producer named Shaukat Khan attacked Bushra, also known as Shazia Aziz, in the wee hours of Saturday at her home.

“A man climbed the wall of our house in the early hours, threw acid on my sister and fled,” Bushra’s brother, Pervez Khan told AFP.

Bushra, 18, was initially shifted to Lady Reading Hospital for treatment, but later taken to another hospital.
