Acid attack culprits booked for attempt to murder

Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Sunday said that his government will take stern action against the culprits in acid attack cases by charging them of attempt to murder.

‘In the event of death of an acid attack victim, section 302 (murder) is normally applied but in case of an acid attack, the government will apply IPC’s section 307 (attempt to murder) against those involved in such crimes,’ Chouhan told reporters after giving details about his pre-poll ‘Janashirwad Yatra’, which will begin on Monday from Ujjain.

The state government will also implement the Supreme Court order on banning sale of acid in open in the state soon, he said.
Referring to his Janashirwad Yatra, Chouhan said it was an endeavour to tell the people about the work done by his government for their welfare and seek blessings for the state Assembly elections, due later this year.

Leader of Opposition in LS, Sushma Swaraj will flag off Chouhan’s yatra from Ujjain, he said adding that other party leaders including LK Advani and Gujarat CM Narendra Modi would also take part in it later on.
