UP Shocker! Acid poured on gangrape survivor for the fifth time




Uttar Pradesh, July 2: Yet again the horrifying assault was repeated despite the assurance of Yogi Adityanath to the gangrape survivor who is attacked with acid for the fourth time.

The fearless crooks poured acid on the 35-year-old woman on Saturday evening in Lucknow’s Aliganj area. This was the fourth acid attack on the gangrape survivor who is becoming the victim of deadly deeds of the assailants who are freely roaming on streets.

The heinous crime took place between 8 to 9 pm outside her hostel.

“She was outside her hostel when someone came and threw acid on her. There are injuries to the right side of her face. The woman is in trauma. We will take strict action,” Additional Director General of Police, Abhay Kumar Prasad told NDTV.

Police said that no FIR has been registered yet and they are awaiting a complaint.

Earlier on March 23, two assailants forced her to drink acid onboard a moving train while she was travelling to Lucknow from her village in Rae Bareli. The attackers poured acid down her throat and she was admitted to a hospital in critical condition. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had also paid her a visit at the hospital and announced compensation for the acid victim.

Earlier, two men had allegedly raped and attacked her with acid over a property dispute in her home at Unchahar in 2009, 100 kilometres from Lucknow.

The woman, who currently works in Lucknow at a cafe managed by acid attack survivors, was gang raped in her village in 2008 and two persons were arrested in the case. She was first attacked in 2011 and then again in 2013. Her family has alleged that the attackers are known to the gangrape accused.

SC stays trial in Junaid lynching case in Harayana



Supreme Court of India

New Delhi, March 19: The Supreme Court on Monday stayed the trial in Junaid Khan lynching case as it sought response from the Central Bureau of Investigation and Haryana government on a plea seeking the transfer of investigation from the state police to the CBI.

Junaid Khan, 16, was lynched by a mob on board a Mathura-bound train in Haryana on June 22, 2017, following a row over seats which allegedly led to snowballed into religious slurs being hurled. The murder triggered nationwide outrage.

The bench of Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice Mohan M. Shantanagoudar stayed the trial before the court in Haryana’s Faridabad and sought response on transfer of investigation to CBI on a plea by Junaid Khan’s father Jalaluddin.

Jalaluddin has moved the top court challenging November 27, 2017 Punjab and Haryana High Court order rejecting his plea for handing over the investigation to CBI.

Holding that there was no substance in the plea to indicate that the investigation by the state police was tainted or shoddy, the High Court had said that there appeared no deliberate attempt to derail the investigation.

It had declined to exercise its extraordinary powers, saying that the case did not have any national or international ramifications.

Junaid and his cousins Hasim Moin and Shakir Moin were on the EMU train going from Ghaziabad to Mathura after Eid shopping on June 22.

The accused, along with around a dozen others, boarded at Okhla and ordered Junaid and his brothers to give them their seats.

When they refused, the three were brutally beaten up, stabbed and dumped at Asaoti railway station in Palwal district.
