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.
