Bengaluru acid attack victim's condition worsens, again shifted to ICU

Bengaluru, May 29 (IANS): The 23-year-old acid attack victim was again shifted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after her condition deteriorated post-surgery, police sources said on Sunday.

The victim had developed complications after going through fifth surgery. She had suffered 36 per cent burn injuries when her jilted lover attacked her on April 28 and has been in the hospital ever since.

The woman was in a semiconscious state and was responding to the treatment. Since, she suffered a drop in her oxygen level, she was again shifted to the ICU ward.

The doctors said, "The woman's burn injuries were on her neck, face and one part of the temple. The skin transplantation has begun and she has to stay for at least one more month in the hospital. The woman has started food intake."

On April 28 the attacker, Nagesh, who was waiting in an auto near the workplace of the woman in Sunkadakatte in Bengaluru, had chased her on the road and then poured acid on her.

The police said that the accused studied in the same school with the victim in SSLC (Class 10). However, the girl had spurned his advances.

Karnataka Health Minister K. Sudhakar had visited the acid attack victim in the hospital and assured free treatment. He also announced that the government would provide her with a suitable job once she recovers.

The attacker, who was at large, was found hiding as a religious seer in Tiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu. The police found him on May 13 and shot him in the leg after he tried to escape from custody while being brought back to Bengaluru. Further investigation is on.

    I respect our police team. They do their best.but for their hardwork they get nothing. Now this man they kept in jail for what? Who will pay for his daily needs? He is enjoying without any tensions. I love law of Moses Same law even today practice in Saudi Arabia. An eye for eye tooth for tooth. He should also be made to undergo same suffering. Acid with more concentrated to be sprayed on him including his private parts. Then he will understand the difficulty of that lady. But our government feeding and protecting criminals. Thanks to the judiciary. For your laws and thanks also to lawyers those who fight to support criminals. And protecting them with care Shame to all judiciary.

    Very sad and painful to hear. This is like the lifetime punishment and trauma of this young girl without her fault. These crimes should be taken very seriously and the predators should be sentenced to death mercilessly. Before the execution of the sentence, police should make him stand before the girl and should be slapped by her parents. Youth organizations should fight for this cause.
