MITHI: Two nominated suspects were booked on Monday after a woman allegedly kidnapped and gang-raped five days back was found dead in her house in Mehran Soomro village. Her brother told police that she was so traumatised that she killed herself.
The body was taken to the Diplo Taluka Hospital by police for a post-mortem examination late Sunday night.
According to preliminary investigation, the woman was gang-raped and left at a desolate place near her village. She remained unconscious for many hours before her relatives found her and took her to a hospital.
In her written statement given to the Kaloi police, she narrated her ordeal and said she was kidnapped by the suspects while she was going to Hyderabad to get documents of her father’s pension.
Her brother, while lodging an FIR against the suspects, said that after criminal assault, the family was forced to take the matter to a jirga and not to go to the police. He said the area police were also reluctant to register the case under the influence of certain local figures.
Already traumatised, she could not bear the helplessness and took the extreme action of killing herself, he added.
SHO Ali Hassan Chang of the Kaloi police station said that an investigation into the matter had been started.
