Rape victim ends life

The victim, Chandravati Devi, was found hanging from the ceiling at her home in Sahaswan village in the district.

Chandravati had allegedly been gang-raped by four persons at her home about a month ago. She had dared to lodge a report against the alleged culprits with the police and her family had been pursuing the matter to ensure that they were punished.

“We had been receiving threats from the culprits ever since we lodged a report with the police. The culprits threatened to rape Chandravati once again and kill all of us if the girl did not withdraw the complaint,” said Santosh, Chandravati's brother.
