LUCKNOW: A gang-rape and acid attack survivor has once again been attacked with acid in Aliganj locality here, police said today.       

This is the fifth attack on the woman.

She has sustained burn injuries on her face and neck, police said, adding that no FIR has been registered yet and they are awaiting a complaint.

Earlier on March 23, the woman was allegedly forced to drink acid by two men on-board a train near here.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had visited her at a hospital and announced Rs 1 lakh assistance for the 45-year-old woman.     

The incident had came to light when the woman had got off the Allahabad-Lucknow Ganga Gomti Express at Charbagh Station here and gave a written complaint to the government railway police. She wrote the complaint as she could not speak.
