Two police officials and the two accused were on Friday arrested while the Chief Medical Superintendent (CMS) of the district hospital was suspended in connection with the self-immolation attempt by a backward caste girl in Firozabad after being raped, official sources in Lucknow said.

Ganga Sharan, SHO Nagla Khangar police station, and sub inspector Siyaram were arrested after an FIR was lodged against them for not performing their duties effectively and destroying evidence, the sources said.

The two were earlier placed under suspension.

The CMS of district hospital Dr P K Jain has also been suspended for not informing the government about the incident and laxity in performing his duties, they said.

A 13-year-old girl belonging to a backward community attempted self-immolation at her residence in Nagla Gumani village after being raped by Rahul (18) and Bablesh (19) when she was returning from a Republic Day function.

Both the accused were also arrested, the sources said.

The girl had said in her statement given before a magistrate that she was raped by the two youths. She is presently undergoing treatment in a hospital.
