  • CM Yogi Adityanath is trying to woo the Dalits

Following the brutal assault on an acid attack survivor in Uttar Pradesh's Aliganj, the Congress Party said that the Uttar Pradesh governance under the leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has turned into "Gundaraj" and "Jungleraj". "We will take strict action", Abhay Kumar Prasad, additional director general of police, Lucknow, told NDTV.

The woman are undergoing treatment at trauma centre and right side of her face were injured.

Two men are facing trial for all of the attacks but were released on bail in April, AFP reports.

"The law and order has completed broken down in UP".

"The investigation has started".

Police said a formal complaint is yet to be registered as the family is yet to give a complaint.

About Saturday night's incident, Jai Narain Singh, the inspector-general of the Lucknow range, said she had not named anyone but two persons from Rae Bareli whom she had named after the March attack had been taken into custody.

Sikkim standoff: China map claims disputed area with India, Bhutan
The kingdom of Bhutan lies on the northern side of the corridor and the neck is considered both lifeline and underbelly of the NE. It shows that China fixes the trijunction far south of where India and Bhutan do, which explains the current stand-off.

The incident took place less than three months after the suspected rapists allegedly forced her to drink acid on train while she was travelling from her hometown, Rae Bareli, to Lucknow because she refused to withdraw her complaints against them. She has lodged at least eight FIRs against the two accused and their accomplices, according to the Hindustan Times.

Chief Minister Adityanath had gone to meet her at the hospital then and assured her security.

The police does not have any CCTV footage so far and has been unable to track from where the miscreants entered the compound of the working women's hostel in Aliganj locality.

The woman and her family allege the acid attacks are being orchestrated by people known to the gang-rape accused. In 2013, she had to face a similar ordeal again after she was attacked with acid, the NDTV report said.

"She was filling water at the hand pump when the attack took place. Why?" the NGO posted on Facebook.

Earlier this year when Hindutva hardliner Yogi Adityanath of the BJP formed the new government in Uttar Pradesh, he made tall promises to ensure women's safety in one of India's most crime-ridden states. "The culprits in various crimes are roaming freely and women and children are living in fear and terror", said Rajendra Chaudhary, SP spokesperson.
