I lost my daughter Preeti to a ghastly acid attack. She was attacked in broad daylight at Bandra Station in Mumbai on 2nd May this year. She suffered severe injuries on her face and internal organs. Her eyes were damaged, her liver and kidneys got infected and she endured crucifying pain for almost a month.
She put up a brave fight but eventually gave in to her injuries and infection. She left us after suffering a cardiac arrest on 1st June 2013.
It has been a month since the attack and the culprit is still at large. Nobody knows who he is as his face was covered during the incident. The police has not made any headway yet.
I demand justice for my daughter who suffered so much because of this criminal. After my daughter passed away, I met the home minister of Maharashtra, R.R.Patil, and demanded a CBI enquiry. He promised an enquiry but I have not been provided with any time frame for it. The enquiry has not even started yet.
With every passing day, the chance of nabbing the culprit is getting bleaker. I have started this petition to ensure that the Home Minister keeps his promise and the enquiry is started as soon as possible.
Preeti was about to start a new life as a nurse in the Indian Navy. She worked very hard to get this job so that she could support us. But her excitement and enthusiasm was cut short due to an act of madness by a maniac.
Please sign my petition to reiterate the urgency of the matter and persuade the Home Minister of Maharashtra to start the investigation at the earliest.
Your support will strengthen our demand and encourage me to fight this long battle to get justice for my daughter. I am sure Preeti's soul is watching us with hope and expectation to get justice.
