In a shocking incident, a 21-year-old student of a Delhi college and her parents consumed poison at their Meerut home on late Wednesday night, three days after members of an influential family allegedly attacked them and molested the woman and her mother. They were rushed to a hospital on Thursday morning where the 45-year-old mother died while the woman and her father are battling for life. Five of the eight accused have been arrested. According to locals, the girl was sent to Delhi in 2015 after a youth from the family of the accused started harassing her. “The family, belonging to the Dalit community, had approached the police back then, but no action was taken,” a relative said.
