Oscar award winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy Films have released the eighth animated short film from its famous Aagahi series, titled Acid Crimes. Aagahi is a public service campaign which aims to educate women about their legal rights in Pakistan.

It also highlights how these are punishable crimes with laws in the Pakistani legal system, including a sentence of 14 years in jail, life imprisonment, one million rupee fine or all of the above.
