Two motorcycle-borne men threw acid on a 28-year-old woman in Walterganj police station area of Basti district on Monday night. Pramila, the Police said, suffered burns on her face near the eyes.

In her complaint, Pramila said she was walking on the road outside her house with her mother around 10 pm when two men, riding a motorcycle, came and threw acid on her face before fleeing.

According to the police, the girl got married in 2010, but has been living with her parents who run a tea stall at their house in Manauri Chauraha.

Walterganj station officer Akhilesh Kumar Singh said the woman was initially reluctant to lodge a complaint, adding that an FIR has been registered against unidentified persons. Singh said Pramila did not suffer any serious injury on her face except some portion near the eyes. Her vision has not been affected and she has been discharged from the hospital.

    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.
