Jharkhand acid attack: Justice still eludes victim

Bokaro: Even as financial and medical help pours in for acid attack victim Sonali Mukherjee, justice still eludes her. It's just the beginning of a long battle ahead for her. As soon as she reached her hometown of Bokaro in Jharkhand, she went to meet the Bokaro Deputy Commissioner, demanding justice.

Her family, meanwhile, has knocked on every possible door, to help secure a job for her.

It approached Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda and authorities of the Bokaro Steel Plant for help.

Bokaro Collector Anil Saxena, meanwhile, said that "round the clock" security had been provided to the family. "We have also requested the state government for compensation," he said.

Sonali had appealed to the Indian government to either provide medical support or let her be mercifully killed.

After her story aired on CNN-IBN, help from various quarters poured in, with lawyers and doctors in Delhi offering to look into her case.

Sonali is meanwhile thankful that the media came to her rescue. "Thanks to CNN-IBN... I received a lot of help."

She still has not given up and with her stands CNN-IBN. As she braces up to take her battle to the highest court, CNN-IBN will be following her quest for justice.
