How many acid attacks are there?
1500 every year around the world
It is widely known the fact that anyone who throws acid in someone’s face intends to scar them for life. Unfortunately, statistics do not look too good at all. More and more people are victims of acid attacks. Believe it or not, around 1500 cases are recorded around the world every year. These statistics have been made public by the Acid Survivors Trust International. Not too many people know that the prevalence of attacks in South Asia can be explained by the easy availability of acid in this area.
