Locals took to the streets in frontier district of Kupwara on Thursday demanding the arrest of a territorial army jawan, who allegedly tried to molest a young woman following which she committed suicide.

The 20-year-old college girl allegedly consumed poison at her house in Doolipora-Trehgam, 100 kms from here, after the jawan and his friends tried to molest her last night, official sources said.

The jawan identified as Ashiq Hussain Mir entered the house along with some friends.

After family members narrated the incident to their neighbours, people came on the road and held demonstrations.
