A 35-year-old woman was attacked with acid on Saturday evening in Lucknow’s Aliganj area. According to an NDTV report, the woman, who is also a gangrape survivor, was attacked for the fourth time. The incident 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.

Earlier in March, two men attacked her with acid on-board a moving train while she was travelling to Lucknow from her village in Rae Bareli. The attackers allegedly forced her to drink the acid. She was admitted to a hospital in critical condition. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had also paid her a visit at the hospital and announced a compensation of Rs l lakh.

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

    She was under security cover, provided by the state government.. The whole incident sounds fishy.. Let the investigators derive at some conclusions. We have seen NASEEMUDDIN faking as a dalit Chandrashekhar Azad ! UP has been witnessing fake Gau Rakshaks, when caught, most of them belonged to 'flat earth' community. Their was a juvenile girl, teased and molested by 14 teenagers, all of them were again from the flat earth cult.. Flat earth's were paid to scream 'hindu vahini' for every sneeze! Hence there are frequent attempts to malign yogi GOVERNMENT in the state.

      It's better to be cow in a nation than woman. So many laws to protect cow,strict laws.. but the real mother is left to be doomed. Jai hind jai Bharat .. it's mandatory to show your nationalism.

        What happened to the rspists? I suspect they roam free. The paper should do some investigative reporting on these facts. Only that will make a change in the courts.

          The problem is courts. They take decades to deliver justice. The laws are also soft. Yogi, Akhilesh or Mayawati cannot do anything. They can only arrest the accused and produce them before the court. The law allows release of such accused persons on bail so no government can keep them behind bars.

              It was even worse during the SP and BSP regimes. Blame all parties of UP for it, instead of any one party.

This is the id1iotic Bhakt response and defense - - "She was r,a,p,ed and attacked with acid more times under UPA and SP " Completely ignoring the fact that she had met Dhongi Adityanath who had assured her police protection . Now she has been attacked with ACID again .

                      Dhongi Adityanath the Prince of Cowtards , has already said , it remains to be seen whether she was actually attacked. She has been attacked multiple times , she was gang-r,a,ped . The r,a,pists were arrested and then RELEASED . Her face is completely destroyed with ACID . She cannot even speak . And now the CM is casting doubts now her claim , that she was attacked again . Enjoy the ACCHE DIN .
