An aspiring model left with severe facial injuries in an alleged acid attack has shared the latest inspiring images of her recovery and praised friends for their support.
Resham Khan has shared fresh images of herself as she undergoes treatment after she and her cousin, Jameel Muhktar, were attacked in east London.
It comes after the brave student opened up about her gruelling and painful recovery in a blog with a series of posts, explaining the extensive medical treatment she endured.
Ms Khan, 21, has shared images online of herself with no visible scarring, and thanked her friends for their support after the attack on her birthday in June.
Alongside the caption “today’s eye operation went well”, she posted an image of herself on Instagram that was welcomed with positive comments from her followers.
And on Twitter the aspiring model posted screenshots of messages of support she received from her close friends, with the caption: “My friends just made me cry. Such beautiful souls around me.”
One text from her friend reads: “We all got you in our prayers… and we here to bring you up if you ever let yourself get down.” Another said: “Just know we are here for you whenever you need us.”
In a group chat named ‘Destiny’s Child’, another friend adds: “here to support you all the way through it… but legit, it’s ironic, you’re not still beautiful, you’re beyond it.”
Shortly after the alleged June 21 attack, she shared pictures of herself with large dark scars on her body and scabs across her face.
In a blog post written on August 12, she described the medical treatment she had undergone, which included having her burns continually treated with a “body jet spray” and several skin grafts.
She described herself a mentally “up and down… as normal as can be given recent events” and wrote: “You have all seen how I looked, my face was all swollen, my burns took my skin.
“I know I haven’t shared any photos, but … you have all seen me at my worst, so at least let me show you when I’m looking good. For me that would be when my eye looks normal. The skin colour I can deal with, the scarring I can cover or treat.”
John Tomlin, 24, has been charged with two counts of GBH in connection with the incident. He is due to stand trial at Southwark Crown Court on November 27.
