Every year, Bangladesh records hundreds of cases of people being attacked with acid.
Hydrochloric and nitric acid used in jewellery workshops across the country are cheap and readily available. But as a weapon, acid is devastating, causing irreparable damage.
Bangladesh is one of the most crowded countries in the world with most acid attacks being over land and property disputes.
On this edition of 101 East, we look at how acid attacks have affected lives across Bangladesh and ask what is being done to stop it.
