In Unnao, a woman was attacked on December 5 by a group of five men, including two who had gang-raped her last year. They burnt her and left her for dead, but she ran for a kilometre for help, her body in flames and was admitted in a hospital in Lucknow with 90%.
She was later airlifted to Delhi’s Safdarjung hospital where she succumbed to her injuries at 11:40 PM last night,
