APPEAL

Many of you would have read about the brutal acid attack on 22 year old THAKUR on 31st January at Goregaon station. This was the third attack since November 2011, the first two being cases of slashing and stabbing, both with the intention to inflict grievous injury and severely intimidate her. Aarti lives with her mother, Seema and younger sister, Pooja. Aarti was the only one holding a job at the time of her attack. She had joined a private firm in as a receptionist in January and is too new in this job to be entitled to any financial support. Her mother has been unable to rejoin her work in the past two months as she has been trying to protect Aarti, including shift out of their Malwani rental accommodation to Nalasopara.

Aarti is a victim of gross negligence by the police which failed to take cognizance of the first attack of slashing that took place in Malwani. Even as the crimes are being investigated, the immediate need is for a fund for Aarti’s immediate and long term treatment and surgeries. We visited Aarti in the hospital on February 3rd. We learnt that she needs to undergo her first surgery immediately as the burns are fairly deep. Some friends have already contributed which we handed over on the 5th February.

The Akhil Bharatiya Janwadi Mahila Sanghatana (AIDWA), Mumbai District Committee, appeals to all concerned citizens to support Aarti and her family and contribute towards a fund for her treatment. If you wish to make a contribution, please contact us on the mobile numbers given below. We also urge you to share this appeal with your friends and encourage them to contribute to this cause.
