A 14-year-old girl from Meerut set herself on fire because four men were stalking her for months. The girl, according to a report by Times of India killed herself because she was not able to handle the harassment.

This class VIII student dropped out from her school first and then her tuition class, and finally killed herself. She poured kerosene on her body and set herself on fire.  Her family claimed that she had even gang-raped by the same men.

The girl’s brother said to the Times of India that these men used to agonise her on her way to and way back from school. “We should’ve known something was wrong when she suddenly left school. Then she wouldn’t go for her tuition classes in the evening. These men drove my sister to death,” he added.

The girl’s family told the neighbours that she had burnt herself in an accidental fire. When some local organisations came to their support, they decided to file a police complaint. The accused were charged under IPC sections 306 (abetment of suicide), 376D (gangrape) and 511 (punishment for offences punishable by imprisonment for life).  Ankit Singh, one of the four accused have been arrested. Rajesh Kumar, the superintendent of police (rural areas), told the Times of India that police was in full swing to nab the other three accused.

Yogi Adityanath, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, raised concerns over the safety women in the state during a public programme in Meerut and urged the police to take appropriate actions.
