An Iranian man, identified as Hamid S., who permanently disfigured another in an acid attack has had his eye gouged out as punishment.
Hamid S., poured acid over victim Davoud Roshanaei in 2005, causing his victim to lose an eye and an ear.
An Iranian court sentenced him to qesas, 'retribution in kind' and he has now had his eye and ear surgically removed at a prison in Karaj.
According to reports by Iranian newspaper Hamshahri, the man had been hired by the relatives of his victim’s wife.
The blinding of his right eye was postponed until a later date. He was also ordered to pay “blood money” (diyah) and sentenced to 10 years in prison.
