In a gruesome act, 2008 gang rape and acid attack victim was on Saturday again attacked with acid at her home in Lucknow’s Aliganj. 35-year-old woman was at her home when some unidentified men attacked her with acid.
Earlier in March, She was forced to drink acid throat down and was admitted to the ICU at Lucknow’s King George Medical College. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had also gone to meet her in the Hospital and assured the accused will be punished.
