Akhilesh assures help to acid attack victims’ cafe in Agra

Agra: UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday visited the Sheroes Hang-Out, a cafe near the Taj Mahal run by acid attack victims, and assured all help to them to run the establishment.

He met acid attack victims Neetu, Geeta, Ritu and others, had coffee with them and directed District Magistrate Pankaj Kumar to look for land to help them to open a bigger and better cafe.

The Sheroes Hang-Out has attracted international notice, as the victims, instead of surrendering to depression or seclusion, and initial hesitation to move out openly, are now working in the cafe and serving foreign tourists.

A library and boutique are additional attractions for tourists.
