The Delhi government will provide jobs to six acid attack victims, an official said on Wednesday.

"The Delhi Government's health ministry today (Wednesday) informed DCW that it will give employment to six acid attack victims," a Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) official told IANS.

He said DCW chief Swati Maliwal met Health Minister Satyendar Jain last month and gave him the resumes of acid attack victims regarding their employment in the department.

"She also sent the resumes of acid attack victims to several other departments of the government among which the health department responded first," the official said.

"However, any written communication from the ministry in this connection is yet to be received," the official added. - IANS
