Ray Of Hope For Acid Attack Victim

An Indian  woman who was the victim of a horriffic acid attack when she was a teenager has won $70,000 in India’s version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. The show’s host said ‘The nation salutes her as do all of us, but simultaneously hangs its head in shame for this dastardly act.’ In 2003 Sonali was left partially blind and deaf after she rejected a boy’s advances and he and his mates later broke into her house and doused her with acid while she slept. Since the attack she has received no state funding for her 22 operations nor have her attacker’s been properly punished (each only receiving 4 months jail). Her family sold their land and mother’s jewellery to pay for the numerous operations. The winnings will help pay for further plastic surgery.
