A young woman from North Kashmir’s Bandipora district died after consuming poison in a hospital in the area where she was being treated. The girl took the extreme step after her father allegedly raped her repeatedly.

The woman was rushed to a hospital not much later after it was found that she had consumed poison. She, however, did not manage to survive the suicide attempt. Upon investigation, her sister revealed that their father, who constantly raped her, was responsible for her death, although a suicide note hasn’t been retrieved from the girl’s room. The victim’s sister further added that the father used to rape her as well, and would threaten to kill her if she ever revealed it to anyone. She apparently opened up to her grandfather about the same, who asked her to stay quiet for the sake of the family’s reputation.

Following the statement provided by the victim’s father, the accused man has been arrested. The officials reported that further details will be revealed once a probe was launched.
