A jealous boyfriend tried to force his girlfriend to drink acid after he heard she had slept with other men, reported the New Straits Times.
But Ms Hanis Siti Fatimah, 49, a divorcee, refused to do so.
District police chief Superintendent Abdul Razak Hassan said: "She pushed the suspect's hand away but the acid from the bottle splashed out and hit her face and body. At the same time, the acid also splashed onto the suspect's hand and body."
The incident happened on Tuesday (Jan 6) at a house in Pahang, Malaysia.
The Indonesian woman suffered serious burns to her face and body.
Her condition took a turn for the worse on Thursday (Jan 8) and she is in a coma.
