Police said that a probe is on in the matter although no FIR has been registered yet, pending 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 come to light when the woman had got off the Allahabad-Lucknow Ganga Gomti Express at Charbagh Station and gave a written complaint to the government railway police. She wrote the complaint as she could not speak.

As per the complaint, two persons had forced her to drink acid.

Earlier, two men had allegedly raped and attacked her with acid over a property dispute in her home at Unchahar in 2009, 100 kilometers from Lucknow.

The woman works with Sheroes Hangout Cafe, an outlet run by acid attack survivors in Lucknow.

In 2012, the woman was attacked with a knife, and in 2013 she was attacked with acid, police sources said.
