Early Times Report
JAMMU, Feb 12: GLDM Degree College Hiranagar took a proactive step in addressing a critical issue by organizing an awareness camp titled "Legal Services To Victims of Acid Attacks." This event, held in collaboration with the Tehsil Legal Services Committee Hiranagar, was conducted under the esteemed patronage of Dr. Pragya Khanna, the college's principal. The primary objective of the camp was to disseminate crucial information to students and the general public about the devastating consequences of acid attacks on victims. Tragically, these attacks, which are predominantly targeted at women, often stem from reasons such as rejecting suitors, declining marriage proposals, or refusing dowry demands.
Distinguished speakers at the event, Advocate Ch. Sohan Singh and Sunil Sharma, shed light on the topic, particularly focusing on the legal aspects under the Criminal Law Amendment Act 2013, specifically sections 326A and 326B. Their insightful discussions provided attendees with a deeper understanding of the legal framework surrounding acid attacks and the avenues available to victims for seeking justice.
The successful coordination and management of the entire event were attributed to the efforts of Prof. Rakesh Sharma, Head of the Hindi Department, along with Dr. Vijay Chouhan and Dr. Rajni Bala. Their dedication ensured the smooth execution of the program, facilitating meaningful engagement and learning opportunities for all participants.
The event concluded with a formal vote of thanks delivered by Prof. Shapia Shameem, expressing gratitude to all involved parties for their contributions towards raising awareness and advocating for the rights of acid attack victims. Such initiatives play a crucial role in fostering a more informed and empathetic society, ultimately working towards the prevention and mitigation of such heinous crimes.
