A woman who suffered horrific burns and lost her eyesight after having acid thrown in her face because she turned down the sexual advances of three men has married the love of her life. Brave Sonali Mukherjee-Tiwari, 29, was left with 70 per cent burns to her face when three teenagers broke into her home and threw acid over her after they branded her ‘arrogant’ for turning them down. Sonali, who was just 17 at the time, was forced to endure more than 28 different surgical procedures as medics battled to limit the damage the acid had done to her skin in the 2003 attack. Sonali spent much of the next decade hiding in her parents home, but following a number of appearances on TV in India, her story touched the heart of one viewer so deeply, he had to get in touch.After a period of getting to know each other, Sonali and 29-year-old Chittaranjan Tiwari fell in love and tied the knot on 15 April, 2015. Sonali and her husband need to decide their future. She said: “We want to go to Mumbai for our honeymoon and then we need to decide where we will live.

“I never thought marriage would happen to me. But if someone wants to hold my hand and support me in this life then I should give him a chance.

“I now need to get used to my new name. I am no longer just Mukherjee, I am Mukherjee-Tiwari. This is a dream come true.”
