Luckow : An insensitive case has cropped up in Uttar Pradesh, when three women constables took selfies with an acid attack victim. Following the complaint, the cops are suspended.

The 45-year-old woman, who allegedly has faced acid attacks and gang-rape in the past, had claimed that she had been forced to drink acid by two men in the Allahabad-Lucknow Ganga Gomti Express on Thursday. The victim is treated in King George's Medical University for treatment.

Moved by the incident, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visited the survivor at the hospital.

However, the three constables, deployed there for her protection, took selfies with the victim in her bed which went viral. A red-faced police department was forced to suspend the three constables and order a probe.

Meanwhile, the police claimed to have arrested the two accused persons identified as Bhondu Singh and Guddu Singh in connection with the case.

According to police officials, the shocking incident came to light when the woman got off the Allahabad-Lucknow Ganga Gomti Express at Charbagh station and gave a written complaint to the government railway police.
