Imagine being denied a bank account just because one is an acid attack survivor. This is exactly what Pragya Prasun experienced when a KYC machine could not scan her complete biometric details because of her inability to blink.
The accused was repeatedly threatening the girl with acid attack ever since she broke up her 6-year-old friendship with him.
The girls is said to have fell out with him about two months ago. Besides her former friend, two of his friends were allegedly involved in the attack.
The accused threw acid on a married woman on Friday morning for refusing to marry him. The Kumaraswamy Layout police had launched a hunt for him.
The Karnataka Police have formed seven teams to nab the man who threw acid on a woman for refusing his marriage proposal, said officials on Monday.
Speaking to reporters, the social security, women and child development minister, Aruna Chaudhary said that she salutes the bravery and courage exhibited by the acid attack surviving women in the face of heavy odds.
During the month of March, these surgeries were performed at BLK Super Specialty Hospital in New Delhi and GS Memorial Plastic Surgery Hospital and Trauma Center in Varanasi.
The women were rushed to a hospital, where their condition is stated as stable.
The main accused, Inderjit Singh, was known to the woman and was keen to marry her, but her parents were reluctant to do so, they added.
