This is one video caught on a CCTV, there are many of such kind, men attacking women's face with ACID. This is a life changing act, which could severely injure them, and in some cases, kill them. In this case, the stranger is unknown. But many cases in India showcases girl not accepting love proposal from boy, and in turn the boy attacks with acid. One such incident happened in a place called Warangal in India, where a boy harassed a girl saying that he loved her. When the girl rejected the proposal, he, along with his friends, attacked the girl and her friend with acid. Eventually the girl died, and all the three boys who were accused were killed in an encounter. 

Why such attacks? We really need to understand the society and what our society teaches us about girls and their safety. Girls are same human beings like boys, and are prone to attacks, harassments, abuse, prostitution etc. How different is a female body from the male body in appearance, and how different are boys eyes in looking at that male body and a female body? A question to be answered.
