A 14-year-old girl in Gujarat had to be hospitalised as she attempted suicide by consuming poison after being allegedly kidnapped and raped by two men earlier this month.

The girl, who is said to be in critical condition, had been kidnapped in a car from Dholka town in Ahmedabad district and raped by two men on Dec 6, police said.

The family members had registered an FIR on Dec 14.

The girl, who had been complaining of acute stomach pain for two days, mixed pesticide with water and drank it on Saturday.

She was immediately taken to a private hospital in the village before being transferred to one in the city.

Police are on the lookout for the two men who have been on the run since the incident.

The incident comes as protests continue to roil the nation over the brutal gang-rape of a 23-year-old medical student on a moving bus in Delhi on Dec 16, who finally succumbed to her injuries on Saturday.
