Chennai: Battling for life for almost three months after a gruesome acid attack that left her blind, a 23-year-old woman died at a private hospital in Chennai on Tuesday. Vinodhini, a B Tech graduate working in a private firm, had gone home for Diwali celebrations when she faced an acid attack at a bus terminus at Karaikal on November 14, 2012 by a construction worker whose overtures she rejected.
She was first rushed to a private hospital in Karaikal from where she was shifted to JIPMER (Jawharlal Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences) in Puducherry. She was then referred to a government hospital in Chennai and a private hospital for specialised treatment, where she breathed her last.
A visibly upset Vinodhini's father, Jayapal, a watchman in a private school in Karaikal, said, "He (the accused) should undergo the same pain which my daughter suffered. Acid should be thrown at him."
Vinodhini had received financial help from various quarters, including Rs 3 lakh from the Prime Minister's Relief Fund and Rs 2 lakh from the Puducherry government and from the public in India and abroad, family sources said.
The accused Suresh has already been arrested.
