In December 2011, Manjit Singh of Zirakpur threw acid on INDERJEET’s face because she refused to get married to him. Her face was completely disfigured and her eye sight considerably damaged. She had severe burns on her neck, hands and other parts of the body.
She came to Fortis Hospital Mohali on 19th April, 2012. Over the period of 3 years, she has had 4 surgeries. Treatment for acid burns is time consuming as it requires time for the skin to heal. The most essential aspect of her treatment is psychological counselling given by the doctors which will eventually help her integrate back into society.
