Support for acid attack victims

KATHMANDU: The Youth Association Nepal on Sunday provided support to victims of the recent acid attack — Seema Basnet and Sangeeta Thapa Magar.

The support was handed over to the acid victims from the financial assistance collected for earthquake survivors by the UK-based Youth Association representative Navaraj Ghale. The support was handed over by the Youth Association Lumbini Region Coordination Committee through the Youth Association Central Committee. Basnet and Magar were given Rs 25,000 each at a programme organised by the Youth Association Central Office.

An assailant, on February 22, threw acid on the faces of the two students who were inside the classroom attending tuition classes for the SLC exam.
