Crime Patrol: "Give me justice or let me die". Desperate plea of acid attack victim who was left blind and deaf by the three men who had 'sexually abused her' (Episode 146, 147 on 24-25 Aug 2012)



The Inside Story

Acid Attack Survivor Struggles to Find Justice in Ranchi, Jharkhand

Just in (Ranchi, August 24, 2012): Sonali to get govt job in Jharkhand. Sonali Mukherji remembers that April 22 night, the night when everything went dark for her and her family.

Nearly a decade after being targeted by her jilted "lover" and two of his accomplices, Sonali (27) lives with the constant fear of a reoccurrence. She came to Bokaro to seek financial help from the state women's commission and shared her harrowing story of trauma. The acid attack took away her eyesight, but that was just the beginning of her family's ordeal. Her father quit his job to be with her after the attack, and her family had to shift to their ancestral home in Kasmar due to the incident's aftermath.

Sonali and her family have been living in terror ever since the attack, and her tormentors are now out on bail. The trio involved in the attack had been arrested five days post the incident and received a nine-year sentence from the district and session judge court. However, they managed to secure bail from the high court. Tapas Mitra, one of the three attackers, had his marriage proposal rejected by Sonali, which triggered the attack.

Sonali still suffers from 65% burns and receives a meager amount of Rs 200 per month from the government as disability allowance. The money is utilized to purchase medicines, and her grandmother receives Rs 400 per month as an old age pension. She expressed her desire to seek protection from the state women's commission for her family.

    Its really astonishing to see such real life case. I wonder even the culprit's family support them. and Sonali (Mitali) who is an asset to our country has suffered so much. What we can do on our part is to aware people and help the family as much as we can.
