A 19-year-old teenager is said to have “committed suicide” after when his girlfriend was ‘gang-raped’ in front of him at Chhattisgarh’s Korba district as reported by the Hindustan Times reported on Friday. Cops became aware of the ‘September 1 rape’ after the sufferer, a minor, filed a complaint on Wednesday.
The police force claimed to have caught two suspects a day later on Thursday. According to the police, the girl and the boy were coming back together from a bazaar and fell into the trap of two people wherein they beat the boy badly so much so that he fell unconscious and those two youths molested the girl in front of the boy.
“The girl and the youth were coming back from a bazaar. When they reached Bhelwatrikra in Khatghora area, two youths – Ishwar Das and Khem – objected to them roaming together. They then thrashed the youngster in front of the girl. When he fell unconscious, the duo outraged the modesty of the girl,” said Korba SP Mayank Srivastava said.
“He committed suicide two days after possibly because of guilt. On Wednesday, the girl reached the police station and narrated the whole incident,” he said.
