New Delhi - Police in India say two men riding a motorcycle have thrown acid on a woman in a crowded neighbourhood in New Delhi.

Police officer Suresh Chand said on Wednesday that the attack was captured on closed-circuit TV and is being investigated.

It took place on Tuesday when the two masked men rode past the woman in a crowded shopping area and brazenly flung acid at her face.

News reports say that the woman suffered serious burns to her face and her right eye. The men also stole her purse.

While the country keeps no official statistics on acid attacks, there are regular reports in the media of attackers targeting victims often because of spurned romantic advances.
