A doctor, accused of attempting to rape a minor girl, allegedly committed suicide by jumping in front of a moving train in TP Nagar area here, police said today.


The medico, an Unani specialist, was summoned by police yesterday after a girl from the same village had alleged that he attempted to rape her when she was alone at her house, the police spokesperson said.

The girl had alleged that when she started shouting for help, people from the neighbourhood gathered but the doctor managed to escape from the spot, he said.

When the accused, Chandrapal Singh was called to the police station for questioning, he instead of coming to the police station went to Shivpuram railway line and committed suicide by jumping in front of the train, said police.

The deceased's wife, Rachna has rejected the charges against him and said that the opponents have put these allegations to defame him in order to take revenge of the enmity over councillor elections. He could not bear the blame and decided to end his life, police said.

Singh had last year contested the municipality councillor elections, they said.
