In the 21st century, acid-throwing has become one of society's most barbarous appearances of crime. Acid violence is a heinous crime committed usually against women, intending to harm them. Acid throwing will cause permanent damage to the beauty of a woman and will thus make it difficult for her to lead a normal life in future. A perverse logic behind this could be a man's motive to destroy a woman's face, which she considers to be her fortune. Since acid throwing rarely results in death, the victim has to endure lifelong suffering.
Indian judiciary should provide appropriate compensation to victims. Enforcement of law and justice should work wonders, such that it creates terror in the minds of criminals with strict implementation of stringent punishment of legislation via transparent work by police and judiciary and not be just documented.
