Preeti Rathi


Bombay, India
June 1, 2013

This site is dedicated to Preeti Rathi.
Rathi was attacked in broad day light in front of her family members as she alighted at Bandra Railway Terminus to report at INHS Ashwini to join as a staff nurse on May 2, 2013.

As she got off from the train, Panwar threw a bottle of acid on her face. Rathi died in June.

"The accused's parents often mocked him for not getting a job despite having completed his course and praised neighbour Rathi saying she had got hold of a good job in Indian Navy," Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Himanshu Roy said, adding: "Because of this, Ankur was very jealous of her and had been looking for an opportunity to severely harm her in a bid to deface her so that her career gets destroyed."

"Angered by constant comparison of Rathi and him, Panwar decided to pour acid on her face."

Having suffered severe damage to her lungs, she succumbed to the injuries on June 1, 2013 at the Bombay Hospital.

Hearing a plea on the alleged slow pace of probe in the case by the Railway Police, the Bombay High Court transferred the case to the Mumbai Police Crime branch.
