In a suicide note recovered from her room, the woman alleged that she was raped by a man, who lives in the same village, and his friend, he said. Asif, a resident of Railway station area of the village, took her to his home on August 5 on pretext of having tea where she fainted after having the drink and later, on gaining consciousness, she found herself at Kota railway station. The two men then raped her multiple times at the station and on Sunday evening left her near Talera railway station. "I am committing suicide after getting hurt," the victim wrote in the suicide note. On the basis of the note, a case on the charges of rape and abetment of suicide was registered against Asif and his friend, the SHO said.

The health centre authorities informed the police of suicide by the girl following which the police reached her home and recovered the body, the SHO said.

The case has been handed over to a deputy superintendent of police for further investigation.
