The convicts were Barek, Siddik and Rezia, residents of Bausi village in Sadar upazila.
The court also fined them Tk 50,000 each, in default, to suffer five years more rigorous imprisonment.
According to the prosecution, the convicts threw acid on Hajera Khatun, a housewife of the same village, on October 30, 2007 over previous enmity, leaving her critically injured.
