Meerut, April 2
A Class 10 student committed suicide after she was allegedly abducted and gang-raped while on her way back from a tuition class, police said on Friday.
The girl belonging to a village under the Sardhana Kotwali area consumed poison after returning home on Thursday evening, said police, adding that she died in the hospital during the treatment.
Meerut’s Rural Superintendent of Police Keshav Kumar said four youths were involved in abducting and raping the girl and the police, on the basis of a suicide note left by the girl, have arrested two of the accused and have launched a manhunt to nab two others.
In her suicide note, the girl had named four men, including Lakhan and Vikas from a neighbouring village, besides two others.
Lakahn and Vikas have been arrested while the police are on the lookout for two others, the SP said.
After returning home, she narrated her woes to her parents and consumed some poisonous substance sometime later, prompting her parents to rush her to the SSD Global Hospital in Modipuram, where she died during the treatment. — PTI
