Indian media said the woman was attacked with acid for the first time in 2011, then in 2013 and again in March this year.

The woman, who can not be named for legal reasons, went into intensive care in hospital to be treated for burn injuries to her face and shoulder.

She has been admitted to a hospital after the latest attack.

Earlier on March 23, the woman was allegedly forced to drink acid by two men on-board a train near here. To a private news channel in Varanasi, he said, " Investigations are on. The armed constable responsible for her protection was in the hostel's waiting hall when the incident occurred.

"Has this attack really happened or are some people hatching a conspiracy to defame the state government", he questioned.

"We have already initiated a probe into it", Abhay Kumar Prasad, Additional director general of police, Lucknow said. The police said that those arrested had planned to demonstrate against the state government, which could have caused law and order problem. They were all taken not to the nearest police station but to Police Lines.

She was attacked again, allegedly by the same two men, in 2012 and 2013. Her family has alleged that the attackers are known to the gangrape accused.

"Be it the hostel warden or the girls, no one saw the attacker or anyone fleeing from there". The UP Police claimed, they were detained for planning a protest rally against Adityanath without permission.

"It was not on her clothes, it was applied on her face and neck", Tripathi said. "I was there outside", constable Sandeep said.

A retired police officer was among the 8 persons to be arrested for staging a demonstration against the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh on Monday.

Samajwadi Party leader Naresh Aggarwal said, "We had given the BJP six months time but things have become so bad in three months that it is clear there is no law and order in the state".

Asserting that he only meant to hold a seminar for the upliftment of the Dalits, Darapuri said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on one hand is vouching for a Dalit President and on the other hand is not allowing Dalits to convene a seminar.
