Udupi: A court here on Friday remanded in five-day police custody one of the three accused arrested in connection with the abduction and gang-rape of a 22-year old medical student from Kerala a week ago.

IGP (Western Range) Pratap Reddy said two other accused, Yogesh Shantappa Poojary and Anand were still in a hospital undergoing treatment after their alleged failed suicide bid fearing arrest.
The medical student was kidnapped from the Manipal University in an autorickshaw and gang-raped by three men on late June 20 night. The victim is recuperating in a hospital, Reddy said.
