Posted by Stop Acid Attacks On Wednesday, March 06, 2013


Finally life defeated her on Feb 2013. She is Vidya who confronted acid attack on 30th Jan 2013. 21 year old Vidya works at an internet computercentre. On the day of that incident she was alone. She got attackedby acid while she was coming out from her shop. A man named Vijaybhaskar threw acid on her face which burnt her face, shoulders andarms.

The culprit worked in the catering staff of an IT Company. He wanted to marry Vidya but her family was not accepting his proposal. Just for revenge he destroyed Vidya’s life by throwing sulphuric acid on her face.

Vidya was from a very poor family. Her father had passed, when she was just 7 years old. Her mother was a maid at others’ house. Vidya was working in that computer centre since last two years .She got Rs. 4000 for her job which were consumed by her family to full fill their need.

“The hospital authority was totally responsible for Vidya’s death”-said Vidya’s family. Absence of such facilities is the only reason that the victim loses her life.

This year Vidya is the second prey who lost her life because of this inevitable attack. In this year 2013 whole Tamilnadu is totally throbbed up with the death of Vinodini and Vidya who fell into the quarry of acid attack. Vidya died right after 12 days of Vinodini’s death. Whereas Vidya’s family donated her body to Carniya Shankar Eye CareCenter so that her eyes could be used by someone in need.


मरने के बाद विद्या के परिवार ने उसका कार्निया शंकर नेत्रालय को कर दिया. इस तरह जाते-जाते विद्या दूसरी किसी दूसरे को रोशनी देभी गई.

ये विद्या हैं, विद्या पर 30 जनवरी 2013 को एक युवक ने तेज़ाब फ़ेंक दिया था. जिससे जूझते हुए विद्या ने आखिरकार इसी फरवरी माह में दम तोड़ दिया.

21 साल की विद्या एक इन्टरनेट कंप्यूटर सेंटर में काम करती थी. घटना वाले दिन की दोपहर में जब विद्या दुकान में अकेली थी, तभी विजयभास्कर नाम के यवक ने उस पर तेज़ाब फ़ेंक दिया.

आरोपी युवक एक आईटी कम्पनी में केटरिंग स्टाफ का काम करता था. वह विद्या से शादी करना चाहता था. लेकिन विद्या के परिवार ने उसके शादी के प्रस्ताव को ठुकरा दिया था.

विद्या गरीब परिवार कि रहने वाली थी. उसके पिता जयशीलन कि मौत तब हो गई थी जब वह सात साल की थी. उनकी माँ दूसरों के घर में काम करती थी.

विद्या पिछले दो सालों से एक कंप्यूटर सेंटर में काम करती थी. जिसके एवज में उसे चार हज़ार रुपए मिलते थे. जिससे उसके परिवार के गुजारे के लिए काफी मदद मिलती थी.

विद्या के परिवारवालों ने विद्या की मौत के लिए अस्पताल की खराब स्वास्थ्य सेवाओं को जिम्मेदार बताया. अस्पताल में ऐसे केसों के लिए कोई ख़ास व्यवस्था न होने की वजह से उन्हें विद्या के इलाज़ में काफी समस्या का सामना करना पड़े.

विद्या इस साल तमिलनाडु में एसिड अटैक से मरने वाली दूसरी पीडिता है. विनोदिनी की एसिड अटैक की मौत से ठीक 12 दिन बाद हुयी विद्या की मौत ने पूरे तमिलनाडु को झकझोर कर रख दिया.
वहीँ, मरने के बाद विद्या के परिवार ने उसका कार्निया शंकर नेत्रालय को कर दिया. इस तरह जाते-जाते भी विद्या दूसरी किसी दूसरे को रोशनी दे गई.


    About Us

    SAA is a campaign against acid violence. We work as a bridge between survivors and the society, as most of the victims of this brutal crime, which is much more grave in its impact than a rape, have isolated themselves after losing their face. Due to ignorance of the government and civil society, most survivors find no hope and stay like an outcast, in solitude. SAA aims to research and track acid attack cases and compile a data to get the actual situation of survivors.

    Our Mission

    We work with partners and stakeholders towards elimination of acid and other forms of burn violence and protection of survivors' rights. The process of justice to an acid attack victim remains incomplete until she gets immediate medical, legal and economic help, along with the critical social acceptance. Our vision is to free India from this crime, which reflects the flaws of our patriarchal society and abusive attitudes. We want survivors to have access to fast justice and fight back the irreparable impact of this crime.

    Support Us

    Any amount you can donate to us, no matter how small, will be very gratefully received and put to good use helping acid and burns violence survivors. Your help could help pay for dressings and medical supplies for recuperating patients. A small help could help survivors with vital physical rehabilitation after an attack, including physical therapy and nursing.
