Once, a normal human being, full of aspiration, suddenly becomes a dead soul, defaced and rejected when this heinous crime of Acid Attack is committed against her. The world keeps on moving, so is life, but who cares for them? One should really be interested to bring them back in society and give them justice!! They are our daughters.” Adds Smriti Gupta.
