A 17-year-old student of Barahamia Islamic school at Penkwase in the Sunyani municipality is currently undergoing treatment at the Sunyani Municipal Hospital after her neighbour allegedly poured hot water on her.
The suspect whose name was only given as Rita is said to have picked up a fight with the victim, Abiba Awudu at their house in Sunyani Zongo.
The girl who looked traumatized told journalists that her neighbour picked a fight with her when an old lady in the house nearly fell because of a curtain pole she left in the middle of the house.
She said the old lady asked who placed the curtain pole on the floor and the suspect, instead of saying what the victim had done rather started insulting her parents.
“She got me angry when she insulted my parents, so we fought and she bit my left hand and the neighbours separated us because my parents were not at home,” the victim said.
According to her, after the neighbours separated them she went to change her clothes to go and bath. She said, immediately she stepped out of her room the suspect threw hot water on her.
