The young woman was on her way to a court hearing when she was attacked by the men accused of raping her.

According to India Today, she was first stabbed by the attackers and then set ablaze after they poured petrol on her.

Despite UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath condemning the attack as "saddening", the victim's father said no other politician or MLA has yet come forward to meet them.

The attackers have been arrested and the case will be heard in a fast-track court, promised Adityanath.
