Two youths accused of gangraping a married woman of Scheduled Caste allegedly committed suicide in the wee hours today by jumping in front of a moving train on the Rohtak-Delhi railway track near Kanheli village in the district, police said.

"We had received information in the wee hours that two youths had ended their lives by jumping before a moving train near Kanheli village," GRP official Ashok Kumar said.
"The youths were later identified as Sandeep and Sunil through their mobile phones. No suicide note was recovered from their pockets," Kumar said.
DSP Virendar Singh said, "During police investigation this morning, the woman revealed that Sandeep and Sunil were also involved in the crime and she did not know till then that they had ended their lives."
"Since the woman was traumatised after the incident, she could not recollect the names of other accused at the time of registration of the case," he said.
The woman had alleged in her police complaint that two persons, identified as Kala and Fouzi, along with their three friends, had barged into her house on Wednesday midnight when she was sleeping alone, the DSP said.
They gangraped her and threatened her of dire consequences if she told anyone, she had stated in her complaint, Singh said.
Taking action on her complaint, the police registered a case under IPC section 376 (punishment for rape) and SC/ST Act against the accused and started manhunt to nab them, the DSP said, adding, the remaining three accused are still absconding.
