Unnao Survivor Records Statement Before Magistrate: Police
A 16-year-old girl who had survived an alleged attempt on her life at a village in Unnao and was found in an agriculture field along with two others recorded her statement before a magistrate on Tuesday, police said.
Three girls--aged 16, 15 and 14-- were found unconscious in an agriculture field in Babuhara village of the Asoha police station area on Wednesday night. They had left home to collect fodder for cattle but did not return.
On finding them there, the locals rushed them to a hospital where two of them were declared brought dead. The 16-year-old girl was later taken to a Kanpur hospital where she is undergoing treatment.
Police have arrested two people in the case, accusing them of murder over a "one-sided" love affair.
SP Anand Kulkarni said the girl's statement was recorded on Tuesday morning.
