Meerut: In a fresh incident, an 18-year-old
student was allegedly gangraped and later committed suicide in
Mukari village of neighbouring Baghpat district.
The girl, whose father is a CRPF constable posted in
Patna, was raped on Monday by two brothers Sanjay and Rinku
when she went to her friend Pinky`s house to learn stitching,
Baghpat Police SP Preetendra Singh said.
She was found unconscious by her family members at the
house, he said, adding that the victim later committed suicide
by hanging from a ceiling fan on Monday night.
Search is still on for the two accused, he added.
Singh also dismissed the allegation by locals that she
took the extreme step over delay in police investigation.
The incident comes at a time when Uttar Pradesh is
reeling under a spate of rape cases.
