A 15-year-old victim of gang-rape committed suicide on Friday evening when the accused molested her again after allegedly being given a clean chit by the police following a two-month long probe in Kirthal village of Baghpat district.

Assistant superintendent of police, Baghpat, Ajay Kumar Singh said the girl’s father had lodged a complaint against five youths on Friday and investigation were on in the case.

The girl’s family had lodged a case of gang-rape against the accused two months ago at Ramala police station of the district.

After carrying out investigation for two months, the police filed a final report giving a clean chit to the accused. “The investigating officer found no proof of a gang-rape and filed a final report in the case,” Singh said.

The girl’s mother told the police that her daughter had gone to the market on Friday where the accused molested her.

She returned home and narrated the incident to her mother. Later, she locked herself in a room and hanged herself from the fan.

The father of the girl is a labourer and unable to plead the case.

A 20-year-old girl from Mathura had committed suicide allegedly over the failure of the police to solve her murder case of her parents.

The girl wrote in her suicide note that she was ending her life due to frustration over police inaction.

Her parents, Banwari Lal and Ravibala, were murdered on March 8-9 this year when they were sleeping in their house in Mathura.
