Allegedly harrassed by Gujarat police, women with two daughters attempt suicide


A woman and her two teenage daughters attempted suicide by consuming pesticide on Tuesday on the premises of district court in Rajkot for their alleged “harassment” by a policeman.

“After they consumed pesticide, the women identified as Nasrin Gulzar (33) and her two daughters, Najnin (16) and Sirin (14) were rushed to Rajkot Civil Hospital, where their condition is stated to be normal,” said Pradhyuman Nagar police station inspector R Y Raval.

Nasrin, a resident of Dhoraji town in the district, alleged that a policeman from Rajkot had been harassing her family and that her husband was booked under false charges.

“She said the policeman would drop in at her residence anytime and harass her and her daughters,” Raval said, adding that he would record the statement of the women once their medical treatment is completed.
