A victim of gang rape committed suicide by consuming some poisonous substance after the police allegedly tried to cover up the incident that took place in Allahabad’s Phulpur area on late Thursday night.

SSP Anand Kulkarni has suspended SHO Phulpur for negligence.

According to reports, two daughters of a confectionary shop owner, aged 14 and 8, went missing on Tuesday night. Hours later, they were found at a closed mobile shop in a nearby market. The police, which broke open the shop, arrested Dayaram, Chandrajeet and Amit while one more Mahanand Yadav managed to flee.

While the elder sister was found unconscious, her younger sister told police that she was raped.

However, the police tried to cover up the incident and did not register FIR against the accused on the same day.
