Koraput: The Kunduli gang rape survivor allegedly committed suicide here on Monday. According to Sunabeda SDPO Narahari Nayak, the survivor was rescued in a critical condition at her home and was rushed to Kunduli hospital where she was declared brought dead.

The survivor had brought rape charges against four security personnel posted in the region on October 10, 2017. The incident had triggered state-wide outrage following which police and Crime Branch probe was ordered.
