  1. Lawlessness is rampant across the country and doctors are now facing the brunt. It is shocking how someone could get acid so freely and fling it on anyone\’s face. The slow moving wheels of the judiciary is responsible for this and if our government doesn\’t act soon, daylight crime will be commonplace. Helping the doctor is our immediate concern but curing the social malaise is to be our long-term goal. God bless the doctor-victim and may God drill some sense into the rampaging brains globally.

  2. really a heinous and cowardly act. If any professional issues are there they must sit and resolve. Now I feel India is getting intolerant towards doctors and it has become one of the unsafe place for doctors in the world. I hope our great P M is reading or listening about all these. Just making law is not sufficient,there must be stringent action such criminals. The conviction rate is so low in our country and punishments are so minor which encourage these type of persons to indulge in these anti social activities with full confidence. I see on idiot s reaction is happy up there. So sad and sadistic.
