Acid attack survivor gets job in Supreme Court, thanks to judge
New Delhi: An acid attack survivor, who lost her vision in the incident, will soon join in the Supreme Court as its employee.
Anu Mukherjee was selected two months ago as a Junior Court Attendant at the initiative taken by Justice Kurian Joseph who is one of the three apex court judges hearing the matter relating to acid attacks.
"In my initiative, this job was given to her. I just came to know about the plight of this girl from media two months ago and I took the initiative," Justice Kurian Joseph told a news agency.
"I thought what little I could do from my side not as a Judge but as a human being. I substituted my daughter or my sister in her place and that`s how I responded," he said.
Mukherjee was a dancer in a dance bar till she was attacked by a man in 2004.
