A jilted wife attacked her husband's mistress with sulphuric acid, disfiguring her face and almost blinding her, a court heard yesterday. Hui Fung-keun, 36, needed three skin-graft operations after the incident in September last year, District Court Deputy Judge Abu Bakar bin Wahab was told. Hotel cleaner Lin Wai-ying, 48, denied a charge of throwing corrosive fluid with intent. Ms Hui, whose face is badly scarred, told the court she had lost more than 90 per cent of her sight in one eye and more than 40 per cent in the other in the attack. 'I felt pain and felt very hot. At first, I though it was boiling water,' Ms Hui said. 'But my clothes were damaged and my skin peeled off and there was some blood.' Ms Hui said her lover Fong Shu-ming, 51, pulled his wife away, but she managed to throw more liquid on her as she sought help from neighbours. The trial continues today.
