Durjoy was just two months old when his aunt poured acid down his throat in an attempt to kill him. He was two years old when Al Jazeera first met him in Bangladesh's Acid Survivors' Foundation, with a prognosis that didn't look good.

Two years, and numerous painful surgeries later, Durjoy is learning to speak and play - but he still can't eat solid foods and must live in a carefully controlled atmosphere.

Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley caught up with Durjoy, and learned how, despite the improvements in his condition, his family is now being torn apart in their search for justice.
