One of the prominent cases of acid attack which shook Bengaluru last year was that of a 24-year-old M.Com graduate, who was attacked on April 28 when she was on her way to work. According to police, the accused had been stalking the woman for several years.

He approached her for marriage and when she rejected his proposal, he splashed acid on her. The man was nabbed later in May from Tiruvannamalai Ashram where he was allegedly hiding in the guise of a "Swami".

In June 2023, the victim was offered a job on a contract basis by Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's office at his secretariat.

Another similar case was reported on June 10, 2022, wherein a man allegedly threw acid on the face of his female friend after she turned down his marriage proposal.
