Indian police cast doubt on woman's account of acid attack

Acid Attack Victim, who met UP CM Yogi Adityanath, Attacked Again

Lucknow police have said in a statement that experts from Mahanagar State Forensic Laboratory, who examined the premises of the hostel on Sunday, found an empty mineral water at the spot and its cap inside the bathroom which was used by the woman just before the alleged attack. The victim was first acid attacked in 2011 followed by other serious attacks again in 2011, twice in 2012 and another in 2013. The police had provided her with security after the alleged attack.

She had been receiving round-the-clock police protection because of the previous series of attacks, which the BBC reported were linked to a dispute over property. "Investigations are on. I think by evening we will know if the attack happened or not", reports Hindustan Times.

In March this year, two men attacked her and poured acid down her throat on a train while she was returning to Lucknow from her village in Rae Bareli.

'Lazarus moment' for Sainsbury's after best sales performance in years
Nisa's 1,400 members who operate 2,500 shops including the McColl's convenience chain, would have to approve any takeover. Supermarket chain Sainsbury's hailed its best sales for years, leading to one analyst hailing it as a "Lazarus moment".

Because of the many assaults she had suffered since 2008, this woman was, however, placed 24h/24 under the protection of the forces of law and order, but the armed police faction was not allowed to enter the home.

He said police would continue to "deeply investigate" the allegations.

"It was not on her clothes, it was applied on her face and neck", Tripathi said. "Who would do it [burn her] then?" he said. The Dalits from Gujarat were carrying a 125-kilogram soap to gift to Yogi Adityanath, in order to protest his order of distributing soaps and shampoos among Dalits.

SC continues to register the lowest average in the nation at $1.90, followed by Alabama at $1.96, according to AAA . Joseph area is down 11-cents to $2.23, which is also two-cents lower than this time previous year .

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". Laxmi Agarwal, an acid attack survivor is a public speaker and an activist who is also part of an organization, Stop Acid Attack that aims to sensitise and educate people about the horrors of acid attacks. A manager at the cafe, Alok Dixit, said it was virtually unheard of that a person would deliberately burn themselves with acid.

Independent groups report about 300 documented acid attacks each year in India, though many more likely remain off the record.

Amidst these recent acid attacks in India, there have been countless NGOs working to support and help the victims. 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".
