The victim's mother alleged that her daughter was forced to take this extreme step as no action was taken after the complaint was filed with the police

"Nobody listened to our complaint. My daughter had to take this step only because police did not take any action. They have not yet arrested the culprits," she said.

Superintendent of Police VK Shekhar said that action in any case can be taken only after gathering of evidence.

"The investigation for the case is going on. The punishment will be given according to the reports of the investigation. We haven't yet received the proofs against the culprits. We will investigate authentically," said Shekhar.

The condition of the victim is critical after consuming the poison.
