State to pay acid attack victim Rs 3 lakh
The division bench was hearing of two separate petitions filed by Poor Patients Relief Society in Chandigarh regarding what steps had the government take for the rehabilitation of acid attack victims. Moreover, the court directed the Punjab government to take a decision on coming up with a scheme to provide free medical treatment and grant compensation and rehabilitation to such victims.
“An acid attack is worse than murder. An acid attack victim faces ordeal throughout her life,” the bench observed. The case will now come up for hearing on March 22.
