The recent acid attack on a 17-year-old girl by a stalker in the national capital is yet another example of how Delhi’s streets are becoming increasingly unsafe for women. While the victim is currently in Safdarjung Hospital, and has suffered 8% burns and disfigurement of the face and neck area,The assailants have been arrested by Delhi police.
What was the mistake of the girl?
The only mistake our young friend made was she said “no” to being friends with Sachin Arora, despite his constant efforts to convince her otherwise. That is why Sachin Arora planned an acid attack with 2 of his friends.
Where did they buy acid from?
They had so much hatred in their minds that despite the ban on sale of acid in the market, they purchased it from an online marketplace. Fortunately, the girl is recovering well, and this could have been much, much worse.

Hopefully this serves as a powerful reminder to any would-be attackers that they will be caught—and they’ll be severely punished. We need to take a hard look at where these kinds of ideas come from—from movies, friends and family, or school? Is it really okay for teenagers to use an internet marketplace without any real understanding of what they’re getting into? It’s high time we start taking drastic action against these criminals instead of just sympathising with them after every crime they commit!
