Training on Rights of Acid Attack Survivors and Implementation of the Law

The Centre for Constitutional Rights in collaboration with Meer Foundation and the Jamia Hamdard University organized the National Meeting and Training on Rights of Acid Attack Victims and Implementation of Law on the 28th and 29th April 2018. Through this collaboration, HRLN and CCRI intended to bring out the stories of the survivors, their struggles in an effort to help create awareness as well as provide a platform for discussing the law as it stands on acid attack and the way forward. The two-day training programme witnessed advocates, expert medical professionals, and other stakeholders come under one roof with the survivors and discuss the detailed procedure of law, compensation, criminal procedure, investigation, medical procedures, and the impact on the lives of the survivors and their families.
