Acid attack culprits won’t be spared: Health Minister Dr.K.Sudhakar

Govt to take care of victim’s treatment

Bengaluru, April 30: Health Minister Dr. K. Sudhakar has offered Rs.5 Lakh to the 24-year-old girl who was attacked with acid on late Thursday night in Bengaluru.

Speaking to media after visiting the girl who is being treated in ICU at St. John’s hospital, Dr. Sudhakar said Government will not spare the culprits who are responsible for such heinous act. Minister spoke to victim and expressed solidarity to her family that govt stands with them and assured that the treatment of the girl will be taken care by government.

Condemning the acid attack, minister said that this is an inhuman incident which is shameful and unbecoming for a civilized society. Cases like these must be trialed in fast track courts and culprits must be punished quickly. Only then we can send a stern message to such anti-social elements and create a deterrent.

Health Dept will extend all support for the treatment of victim girl. The girl has suffered 35% burn injuries and is being treated in ICU. Skin graft necessary for treatment will be sourced from skin bank at BMCRI. I have decided to personally give Rs.5 Lakh to the victim. Our govt will ensure all support to the victim and her family be it treatment, rehabilitation and securing the future of the girl. We as a society need to collectively think and act to ensure that such incidents are not repeated and work towards building a safe environment for women.
