  1. This was the terrifying moment a thug squirted acid over an aspiring model and her cousin through the window of their car, causing appalling injuries. University student Resham Khan, 21, and Jameel Muhktar, 37, were left with severe burns after the vicious attack in east London last June. Both needed skin grafts and Mr Muhktar’s injuries were so severe doctors put him in an induced coma. Today at Southwark crown court John Tomlin was facing many years in jail for the assault. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/crime/terrifying-moment-thug-squirted-acid-over-aspiring-model-resham-khan-and-scarred-her-for-life-a3819276.html
