Korba: A 21-year-old man committed suicide after his girlfriend was raped by two men in Chhattisgarh's Korba district.
The rape took place under Katghora police station limits on September 1, said a police officer.
It came to light two days ago when the girl, who is 17 years old, revealed it during the investigation of the suicide of Savan Sai, her boyfriend.
Ishwar Das, 22, and Khem Kanwar, 21, have been arrested on the charges of gang-rape and abetment of suicide.
The girl told police that Das and Kanwar accosted them when she was with Sai near a school on the evening of September 1.
The accused allegedly thrashed them and raped her in front of Sai before leaving them at the spot, she said.
The next day, on September 2, Sai learnt that the accused had told some youths in the village about the incident, and probably because of the shame he felt, he hanged himself at his house, the police officer said.
