Three sisters were attacked with acid in their sleep in Uttar Pradesh’s Gonda city on Monday night. The sisters, all minors, belong to the Dalit community.

The sisters, aged 8, 12, and 17 years, were sleeping when an unknown person threw acid on them. While two of them have received minor burn injuries, one has sustained injuries on her face.

They have been admitted to a district hospital for their treatment. No arrests have been made so far.

The incident has happened even as the gory incident in Hathras where a Dalit woman was allegedly gangraped is yet to be wiped out from the memory. She succumbed to her brutal injuries on September 29.

More details are awaited.
