Laxmi Agarwal (born June 1, 1990) is an acid attack survivor from India, as well as a fighter for acid attack victims’ rights and a TV host. Laxmi Agarwal, who was 15 at the time, was assassinated in New Delhi in 2005 after rejecting Naeem Khan’s love approaches.
When lawyer Aparna Bhat first met Laxmi Agarwal in 2005, she was 15 years old and had just recovered from an acid attack that had left her face and neck nearly burnt.
