A Pakistani former dancing girl left fighting for life by a ‘horrific’ acid attack has committed suicide a decade after being heavily facially disfigured.
Fakhra Younus, 33, leapt to her death from a sixth floor building in Rome 12 years after the acid attack which she said left her looking ‘not human’.
At the time of her attack in May 2000, her ex-husband Bilal Khar was the man accused of entering her mother’s house and pouring acid over Younus’s face as she slept.
The attack, which took place in front of Younus’s then five-year-old son, left her unable to breathe and fighting for life.
Her was almost completely melted and she has since undergone 39 separate surgical procedures to repair her disfigured face over the past decade.
