Pragya Singh an acid attack survivor Her Shefoughtback journey starts from 2006 when she was travelling from Varanasi to Delhi to attend her campus placement interview. Around 2 am she woke up with a burning sensation in her body. She thought she must have contracted some rare disease on the train. But fortunately, there was a doctor in the next bogie who said that this was not a disease or ordinary burn injury this is an acid attack.
