Jilted Student Disguised Himself In Fat Suit Before Throwing Acid On Ex’s Face
Milad Rouf heaved the destructive substance in Rym Alaoui’s face
A ‘barbarous and envious’ student who studies medicine in school camouflaged himself in a fat suit and tossed sulphuric corrosive in his ex’s face in a ‘planned, noxious and frightening’ attack close to home.
The 25-year-old wore cushioned apparel, make-up and shades to make himself resemble a a black woman of bigger form prior to thumping on her door.
Lewes Crown Court heard the camouflage proved viable, and Dr Alaoui, who is also 25 years old, didn’t remember him as she opened it moments before he made the attack.
She was hurriedly taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, where she worked, and treated by colleague who were stunned by the occurrence.
In an assertion, Dr Alaoui said: ‘Since the day I was subject to this horrific attack, my life has changed tremendously, whereby I live in constant physical and psychological pain, fear of my future wellbeing and socioeconomic hardship.
‘I have been robbed of years of my career and young adult life. I cannot begin to imagine how or why someone could commit such a horrible, premeditated attack.’
She said she fears her medical career may not be available to her again.

Rouf conceded to perniciously throwing sulphuric corrosive at his former sweetheart with the purpose to mutilate and deform her. He was given an 11-year long sentence.
Prosecutor Flora Page let the court know that Rouf and Dr Alaoui had dated momentarily while studying together in Cardiff, however she had cut off the love affair and moved toward the East Sussex city where she started working as a junior doctor.
Rather than just moving on, Rouf went through weeks arranging his assault prior to making a trip to Brighton on May 20.

Ms Page said: ‘Using padded clothing and make-up, he made himself appear to be a black woman of large build.
‘By the time of the attack at 4.15pm, he was dressed all in black and he was wearing a face mask, sunglasses and a face visor.’
Rouf showed her an undermining note composed on a pad – taking care not to talk and give himself away – before throwing 60% concentrate sulphuric acid in her face as she bent to read it.
In spite of her fast thinking in going directly to the shower to wash it off, and the activities of clinical staff, she has been left with wrecking wounds.
Condemning him, Judge Christine Laing QC said the injury endured by Dr Alaoui was unimaginable.
She added: ‘You bought sulphuric acid, as a trainee doctor you would know far better than most people the devastating consequences that has when applied to the human body.’

Judge Laing said Rouf acted out of straightforward envy and outrage at being rejected.
After the hearing, investigating officer Rose Horan said: ‘This was a premeditated, malicious and harrowing incident and I’d like to thank the victim for showing such incredible bravery and dignity throughout. She has been inspirational, and we continue to support her during this difficult time.
‘The evidence we were able to uncover in this case showed that Rouf spent considerable time plannings this calculated attack.
‘He changed his entire appearance in a convoluted attempt to get away with this cruel act.’
