Acid attack has always been a daunting challenge for all governments in India for 2-3 decades. measures after measures have been taken to prevent acid violence but nothing seems to be working in favour. One of the measure reasons why goverment has failed to keep the heinous crime under check is that it is committed by close or distant relatives or friends of victims in most of the cases. The government finds it difficult to keep an eye of the relatives and friends.
Data show a sharp rise in the number of acid attacks in the region in recent years. At least 106 such attacks took place in 2012, as per the Acid Survivors Foundation India (ASFI). And that figure climbed to 349 in 2014. Activists say that figure rose to 520 in 2015.
Sadly, women had fallen victim to this heinous crime in most of cases. But the following story will, for sure, take you by surprise as this time not a man, but a woman has committed the awful sin. This has to be condemned whether man or woman carries it out.
The story belongs a small village which is located on the outskirts of Guntur district (Andhra Pradesh). Girl Hima Bindu and her boyfriend Muhammad Illiyas were in a relationship for more than 4 years. But Iliyas married another girl. Bindu was in pain after the news came buzzing to her, so much so that she promptly decided to take revenge for her pain.
Bindu, who was pursuing her pharmacy course in a private college, called Iliyas over the phone to meet her on the pretext of settling the matter once and for all. When he arrived, with hope to settle the matter, she poured acid on his face for cheating her.
Just a day before the marriage, Bindu approached iliyas’ elder brother Allahbaksu.
“I begged her to spare Ilyas as we never knew about it. She promised me that she would not disturb the wedding. Accordingly, there was no call or any other attempt to create any disturbance in the function on Monday. But, she took her revenge the very next day, rendering the new bride a widow,” said Allahbaksu.
