A gangrape survivor was allegedly attacked with acid in Uttar Pradesh for the fourth time in eight years, police said on Sunday. She was first attacked with acid in 2011 followed by other serious attacks again in 2011, twice in 2012 and another in 2013. "But what we also need urgently is a fast-track judicial system and a more pro-active police which is badly needed", she said. It all began in 2008, for the 35-year old, mother-of-two, when two men gangraped her over a property dispute; she was repeatedly attacked by the same men, who wanted her to erase the criminal cases against them.

The woman, whose name can not be released for legal reasons, has survived four separate acid attacks and an alleged gang rape, the BBC reported on Sunday.

Before this attack, two men had attacked her with acid on-board a moving train in March. Her family has alleged that the attackers are known to the gangrape accused. Furthermore, forensic experts had found no sign of acid splashed on to her clothing or the ground, he said.

The constable deployed for her protection also said he did not see anyone running away from the spot. "The markers should not be so uniform", said Tripathi.

"Who would do it [burn her] then?" "If someone else did not do it, how did this happen?"

As per reports, over 50 Dalit persons from Gujarat boarded the Lucknow-bound Sabarmati Express from Ahmedabad to reach Lucknow and gift a 125 Kg Rs soap' with Lord Buddha printed on it to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

State Women Welfare Minister Rita Bahuguna Joshi said, "There was a guard and some girls, who were there on the hostel roof, when the incident took place but none of them saw anyone".

Survivors of acid attacks attend a rally in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in May 12, 2009.

With the amendments in Indian Penal Code, the reporting / classification of acid violence seems to have gained momentum and the official record for 2014 puts the number of incidents of acid violence all over India at 225 and the number for 2015 has been even higher at 249.

Acid attacks on women are widespread in other South Asian countries also, including Bangladesh and Pakistan.

Dixit said the questions over the woman's latest attack were "a challenge for our team ..." Terming this measure derogatory, protester Dinesh Solanki said, "It was an insult to the entire Dalit community so we thought of this method of protest".
