Acid attacks: A scar on India

Excerpt: “Shabana was yet another victim of what has now come to be known in the country as ‘acid attacks’. With acids – something as ubiquitous as toilet-cleaning liquids readily available at the corner store and as cheap as 30 cents a litre, these assaults have emerged as a preferred weapon of violence against women. Acid attacks have few parallels in their gruesomeness, and victims, such as Shabana would vouch for their viciousness.”
