A 14-year-old girl allegedly committed suicide after being gangraped by three unidentified youths in Moradabad district on Thursday.
The girl was the granddaughter of a former BSP MLA from Moradabad West. The police have arrested another girl,also a minor,who was a friend of the victim.
Police said after the post-mortem report failed to give any opinion on rape,they sent the vaginal slides of the girl for examination. The next course of action will be decided after receiving the report of the slides, Additional SP Mahendra Yadav said. No suicide note was found,he added.
The girls family alleged that she was taken to a house in Manpur locality by her friend on Wednesday where three unidentified youths raped her and shot a video of the incident. Depressed,the girl hanged herself from the ceiling fan in her room. She was a student of Class IX in Moradabad.
The former MLA said,My granddaughter had talked about the rape incident to me,her father and the school principal on Thursday.
Moradabad circle officer Kamlesh Kumar Dixit said,We are verifying the details given by the girls parents.
The Moradabad police registered an FIR against the girls friend and three unidentified persons at Katghar police station.
The ASP said the friend denied the allegations against her.
The ex-MLA said that on Wednesday evening,the principal called his son to ask why his daughter had not attended school that day. The family insisted that girl had gone to school and returned home at the usual time. The principal then asked the parents to come to school.
The next day,the girl told the parents and the principal that she had gone to the house of a classmate,but the classmate denied it. After being scolded by her parents and the principal for lying,the girl said she had gone to a place in Manpur with a friend where three youths raped her.
