Rape survivor faces 4th acid attack in UP

Yet another attack on a 45-year-old woman from Unchahar of Raebareli district at her hostel in Aliganj on Saturday night baffled police as it was allegedly the fifth attack on her. There are injuries to the right side of her face.

The survivor works at Sheroes Hangout Cafe in Lucknow, which is run by acid attack survivors, according to CNN-News18.

The victim was earlier attacked in March.

Adityanath had visited her in the hospital and announced assistance of Rs 1 lakh. I had visited her at the KGMU and then we made arrangments for her treatment and security. The incident took place inside the hostel premises.

"Ye ghatna sachmuch ghatna hai ya fir ghatna ke naam par kuchh log kewal badnaam karne ki sajish rach rahe hain (Did the attack really take place or are some people hatching a conspiracy to defame the State government)", he said.

Speaking to ANI, Juhi said, "The law and order has completed broken down in UP".

Due to the previous string of attacks, the woman was under round-the-clock police protection, but the armed policeman was barred from entering the women's hostel. "We talked to her husband and asked him if he wanted to lodge a case. Investigation has started", Mr. Prasad said.

A woman who survived an alleged gang rape and four separate acid attacks has once again been hit by corrosive liquid, Indian police said yesterday.

"The victim is admitted in the trauma centre and her condition is serious. The plastic surgeon and the critical cases department are treating the burns", he said.

Lakshmi Agarwal, founder of the "Stop Acid Attack" campaign and a victim herself of acid attack, said they were all hopeful when Adityanath met the victim the last time. She was standing near the washroom at the Shramjeevi Hostel and was talking on her phone when she was allegedly attacked, sources said. "We will explore that as well", said Mr. Kumar. Though the woman stayed in a hostel with scores of other females, police could not find a witness. She was then stabbed in 2012 and faced another acid attack in 2013 and in March, this year.

The woman's family claim that the acid attacks are being sent by the accused and their kin to dissuade the victim from demanding justice.
