Korba, September 14

A 21-year-old man committed suicide after his minor girlfriend was allegedly raped by two men in Chhattisgarh's Korba district.

Police said the alleged rape took place under Katghora police station limits on September 1.

It came to light two days ago when the girl, who is 17, revealed it during the investigation of the suicide of Savan Sai, her boyfriend.

Ishwar Das (22) and Khem Kanwar (21) were arrested on the charges of gang-rape and abetment of suicide on Wednesday, the official said.

The girl told the police that Das and Kanwar accosted them when she was with Sai near a school on the evening of September 1.

The accused allegedly thrashed them and raped her in front of Sai before leaving them at the spot, she said.

The next day, on September 2, Sai learnt that the accused had told some youths in the village about the incident, and probably because of the shame he hanged himself at his house, the police official said.

After the girl told the police about the alleged rape, Das and Kanwar were arrested, he said. Further investigation is under way. PTI
