CHANDIGARH: A 19-year-old girl who was allegedly gang-raped by three persons of her community on August 17, committed suicide by hanging herself at her house in on Sunday night. In her suicide note, the girl blamed the cops for forcing her to take the extreme step by not arresting the accused despite their threats to eliminate her and her family members.
On Monday, the girl‘s family members refused to claim the body for cremation after her postmortem was done. They demanded the arrest of two police officers investigating the case and accused them of bias.
In her suicide note, the girl accused three men, including her neighbour, of kidnapping her on August 16 night and raping her at the village community health centre.
She alleged that the accused had even tried to push her into a well and that she had managed to escape from their custody.
“Our investigations are in progress in the case and the team is in the process of recording the statements. As for as the girl‘s suicide, we are yet to record the statement of her family members,” said SP Punia.
Her parents said she had slept in the same room in which they were sleeping. In the morning, they found her hanging in another room.
