Lucknow: A class 11 student committed suicide after she was gang-raped by two men from the same village in Mirzapur district. 

Police inaction in the case is also said to be one of the reasons behind the suicide. 

According to a report by the Times of India, the victim, who was daughter of a winning woman block development council (BDC) candidate, was gang-raped by her mother's political rivals.

The girl's relative have alleged that police inaction and refusal to register an FIR drove the girl to take the extreme step on Friday, two days after she was raped. It was only after that the girl committed suicide, the police swung into action and arrested the two accused.

Reports say that the girl was abducted by the two accused on Wednesday night when she was alone at home. She was dragged to the nearby fields and raped. The girl narrated whole incident to her parents when she returned home.
