Justice for Preeti Rathi #acidattack #cbimustinvestigate


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.

Immediate investigation of acid attack victim Preeti Rathi

Dear Sir,

As a citizen of India I am ashamed to hear about the plight of acid attacks in Maharashtra.

Preeti Rathi, was victim to a ghastly acid attack on her on 2nd May this year in broad daylight at Bandra Station Mumbai. She suffered severe injuries on her face and her 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 she gave in to her injuries and infection. She left us alone after suffering a cardiac arrest on 1st June 2013.

Today more than a month has passed but the culprit is still running free. Nobody knows who he is as his face was covered during the incident and till now police has not made any headway in this case. I demand justice for my daughter who suffered so much at the hand of this criminal. After my daughter passed away I met the home minister of Maharashtra and demanded for a CBI enquiry to which he agreed. But I have not been provided with any time frame within which CBI will start their enquiry. With every single day passing, the chance of nabbing the culprit is getting bleaker. Hence through this petition I want to put forward my demand to commence the inquiry as soon as possible and get Preeti Rathi the justice she deserves.

Looking forward to your early action,

Preeti was about to start a new life after working so hard for qualifying her Job as a Nurse in the Indian Navy. She wished to become support system for us and was very excited but not to be her excitement and enthusiasm was cut short due to madness of a Maniac. That person does not deserve to live freely in the society and we hope that he is brought to justice as soon as possible.
