The acid attack on a 23-year-old woman in Bengaluru in April 2022 shook the nation. The victim was offered a job recently. In July this year, Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah directed officials to offer a job in his secretariat to acid attack survivors who were attacked in 2022.

According to the chief minister’s office, the survivor is an MCom graduate and she with her parents appealed for a job to the chief minister during ‘Janata Darshan’. On hearing her plight, the chief minister promised employment on the spot, according to the CMO.

The police have submitted a charge sheet in the case. In the 770-page charge sheet submitted to the 13th additional chief metropolitan magistrate (ACMM) court, the police have named 92 witnesses, including statements of two eyewitnesses taken under section 164 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
