Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday met a gang-rape survivor who was forced to drink acid yesterday near the Lucknow railway station and assured strict
action against the culprits behind the incident.
The 35-year-old woman is believed to be in a critical state and fighting for her life in the ICU at Lucknow's King George Medical College.
The victim was allegedly forced to drink acid by two men who grabbed her on a train to Lucknow yesterday.
CM Yogi Adityanath also declared Rs. 1 lakh compensation for the woman. 
He also ordered the police to arrest the attackers at the earliest.
Yogi was accompanied by Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya and state's Child Development Minister Rita Bahuguna Joshi, who ordered free treatment for the victim. 
The woman was gang-raped in 2008 in Raebareli and acid was thrown on her stomach. 
Three men were arrested, and the case will soon go into trial. The family had been receiving threats regularly, said the woman's husband.
"It is good that the Chief Minister came but I want the men to be arrested," the woman's husband, who dropped her off at the station, said.
The woman works at a cafe that employs acid attack survivors.
However, no arrest has been made in the case as yet.
