When hot season comes, the attacks rise : in the countryside, population sleep with their windows or doors open in order to get fresh air inside home. Attakers are invisible in the dark night and they throw acid on bed before to run away. Children who sleep with their mothers become innocent victims. Shakaib Ahmad, lawyer at the District Officer Civil Defense : « Crimes occure at night, so no identification is possible. And acid is a discreet wheapon : you carry it in a bottle, like you do with water. Nobody is able to know ». Around Muzzafar Garh, Pakistan-2009
