So now you have to think twice before you step out in your favourite pair of jeans! For all you know you may become a victim of an acid attack.

On Tuesday, posters came up in Ranchi warning women of acid attacks if they wore jeans and tops. The posters were put up by a group called the Jharkhand Mukti Sangh. While the State Women’s Commission chief Hemlata S Mohan is angry about the issue, the police have dismissed it as the work of miscreants.

Here's a look at some of the reactions that poured in on Twitter!
