In­dian woman at­tacked with acid for fifth time

Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE -

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 35-year-old mother, who was al­legedly gang-raped and at­tacked with acid by two men in 2008 over a prop­erty dis­pute, was at a women’s hos­tel in Luc­know when a man scaled the walls and poured the chem­i­cal onto her. The woman sus­tained burn in­juries to her face and shoul­der and is un­der­go­ing treatment at a hos­pi­tal. The woman was at­tacked twice more by the same men, in 2012 and 2013, in a bid to force her to with­draw the crim­i­nal cases against them. Most re­cently, the two men al­legedly forced her to drink acid while she was trav­el­ling on a train with one of her daugh­ters in March this year.
