new delhi - An Indian woman who previously survived a group effort has become a fifth time victim of an acid attack in the North Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. At the time of the attack, the woman was in a shelter for women, but that did not protect her from the attacker. The police also question women's reading.
In 2008, the Indian was attacked by a group of men after a discussion about land. The men raped her and the woman just survived the attack. Over the years five acid attacks followed mainly by her rapists. The last one took place last Saturday night. The 35-year-old mother was busy filling a bucket of water at a pump in the shelter, when a man entered the room and rubbed her with a corrosive fluid.
According to the British newspaper The Guardian, the local police do not believe that the woman has been attacked for lack of evidence. However, a bottle of acid has been found. But because no liquid was found on the clothing of the Indian and the ground, agents attacked as a nonsense.
The woman was treated to her injuries to her shoulder and face in the hospital. Her wife is furious that the police does not help her. 'If no one has attacked her, how was she injured in heaven. '
The woman received police surveillance after an attack in March, but because the (male) agent in question did not allow women's welfare, the victim was alone.
In India, women are regularly victims of abnormal acid attacks. According to a foundation set up to support victims, only 250 cases were reported in 2015. However, the actual number would be much higher. In Uttar Pradesh, 62 women were attacked, the highest grade of the whole country. Victims have been demolished and traumatized for their lives and often need dozens of operations.
