Hossen, who is a Burger King assistant manager said that he saw a victim and his friend run into the fast-food outlet’s bathroom. Both of them were crying in pain and wanted to wash their face as it had been attacked with acid. An eyewitness told Mirror that it didn’t just hit one person, in fact, it was targeted to a crowd of people. There was one guy in the crowd who kept on shouting after the attack. He shouted, “I can’t see, I can’t see, I can’t see.”
The guy must have lost his vision because any corrosive substance is too damn harsh for eyes to bear. The cause of the attack is not yet evident but there are reports about some brawl which happened between two groups.
