LUCKNOW: A 35-year-old gang-rape survivor in Uttar Pradesh has been attacked with acid for the fourth time in Lucknow Saturday evening, reported NDTV. She has been admitted to a hospital after the latest attack.

Acid was thrown at the woman sometime between 8pm and 9pm Saturday when she stepped out of her hostel to fill water from a hand-pump in Lucknow’s Aliganj area. The attack took place despite a round-the-clock police presence for her security and an armed guard inside the hostel.

The woman is undergoing treatment at the trauma centre in Lucknow’s King George’s Medical University. Police said there are injuries on her face after the latest attack. “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,” said Abhay Kumar Prasad, Additional Director General of Police, Lucknow.

Police said a formal complaint has yet to be registered as the family has yet to approach them.

The woman works a Lucknow cafe managed by acid attack survivors.

In March this year, two men attacked her and poured acid down her throat on a train while she was returning to Lucknow from her village in Rae Bareli. A railway police constable found her in an unconscious state inside the train compartment. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had visited her in the hospital in March and given compensation. Hours later, the two accused, named by the woman, were arrested.

The mother of two was allegedly gang-raped in her village in 2008. Two people were arrested and the trial is going on. Three years later, in 2011, she was attacked with acid. In 2013, she had to face a similar ordeal again after she was attacked with acid.

The woman and her family allege the acid attacks are being orchestrated by people known to the gang-rape accused.
