Bhiwani, Aug 28: A 19-year-old girl who was gang-raped nearly two weeks ago, allegedly committed suicide after the police failed to arrest the accused in Bhiwani village of Haryana.
In the suicide note recovered from the spot, the victim said that police inaction into the alleged sexual assault and social stigma forced her to take the extreme step.
According to the reports, the accused kidnapped the girl from her house, took her to the backyard of the nearby hospital and gang-raped her one by one on August 17.
