Causing hurt by giving corrosive substance

If hurt is caused to someone by giving that person acid, poison or any other corrosive substance is a heinous offense according to 336-B of the Pakistan Penal Code. This offense is punishable with life imprisonment or with 14 years imprisonment.

It is a non-bailable offense but a compoundable in nature. Bail is possible in such like offense only if it is established in the court that such corrosive substance has not been given to the victim by the accused persons rather the victim has taken it itself.

If the victim dies in such like circumstances, section 302 PPC may also be added. One of the common problems is that often it happens that a person tries to commit suicide by taking any corrosive substance. In such like cases doctors at most hospitals initially reject to save life rather they refuse to take up the case. That is where mostly the victim suffers and faces death in many circumstances.
