The police have arrested a youth on the charges of rape and abetment to suicide in Abohar, a sub-division of Fazilka district.


A few days ago, Sandeep (name changed), a girl of Azimgarh village, allegedly committed suicide by setting herself on fire. During the investigations into the case, the police learnt that the victim was in a relationship with a married youth, Sunil Kumar, who is a resident of Nihalkhera village, for the past one year.

On the day the incident took place, the girl had gone to Sandeep to talk about their marriage, Abohar superintendent of police Varinder Pal Singh Brar said. Sunil reportedly insulted her, he added. A humiliated Sandeep set herself on fire in the fields belonging to Sunil, the SP said.

Sunil had been booked for abetment to suicide besides on rape charges and investigations into the case were on.
