Meerut: A Class 10 student in Meerut was abducted and gang-raped while she was returning from a tuition class. Later, the girl died by suicide and left a note naming the accused. The girl who hails from a village under the Sardhana Kotwali area consumed poison after returning home on Thursday evening soon after the assault. Police said the school girl died at the hospital during treatment. The suicide note has named one Lakhan as an accused, along with some of his associates. Lakhan has been arrested based on the note while the other accused Vikas and Prakash have also been arrested.
Meerut’s Rural Superintendent of Police Keshav Kumar said four men involved in abduction and rape of the girl have been identified.

After returning home, the girl narrated her ordeal to her parents and consumed some poisonous substance sometime later, prompting her parents to rush her to the SSD Global Hospital in Modipuram, where she died during the treatment.
