The Association for India's Development (AID) condemns the cowardly attack on Linkan Subuddhi, an AID Noida volunteer, who was responding to a call for help from a minor girl being forced to marry. We demand that the perpetrator of this attack be brought to justice, adequate steps be taken by the Child Welfare Committee to ensure that the girl is not forced to marry while being a minor, and both the girl and Linkan be provided protection to ensure their safety.

On 19th September, Linkan Subuddhi was attacked brutally in Naya Bans, Sector 19 Noida. Linkan is a volunteer with AID Noida, which runs a community schoolPrayas in Noida. The perpetrator was attempting to forcibly marry a 14 year old minor who is a student at the Prayas school.
