Kanpur: Three men drive student to commit suicide by harassing, threatening her

Kanpur: In yet another case of alleged harassment, a youth and his friends drove a postgraduate student to commit suicide in the industrial town of Kanpur. The woman had registered a complaint against a fellow student and his two friends, but no action was taken in the case by the police.
