Ranchi: The Jharkhand government on Friday offered a government job to acid attack victim Sonali Mukherjee after CNN-IBN ran a campaign to help her. In addition, Chief Minister Arjun Munda assured adequate security to her family.
Twenty seven-year-old Sonali Mukherjee was attacked with acid in 2003 after she spurned the advances of three men in her neighbourhood in her village in Dhanbad.
However, for nine years, justice eluded her and her perpetrators still roam scot-free.
CNN-IBN highlighted the plight of Sonali Mukherjee who had demanded euthanasia as justice eluded her for nine years.
Disheartened, she demanded euthanasia as her family found it hard to cope with her medical bills. "Either give me justice or let me die," she had said.
It was after CNN-IBN highlighted her plight and initiated a campaign that help started pouring in.
CNN-IBN took up her case with the Jharkhand government.
