New Delhi, December 15: Following an acid attack on a 17-year-old girl in Dwarka, the Delhi Police on Thursday imposed a notice on e-commerce platform Flipkart as the attacker had reportedly bought the acid through this online site.

It has come to the notice of the Delhi Commission for Women that the accused had bought acid through online shopping portal 'Flipkart'. It has also come to the fore that the acid is easily available on leading online shopping platforms such as Amazon and Flipkart,  which is illegal.
