A minor rape victim attempted to self-immolate after being threatened by her accused perpetrators in Madhya Pradesh's Itarsi city.

The minor poured kerosene on herself around 11 am on 12 October and tried to immolate herself. The victim was rushed to a nearby hospital and her treatment is underway.

"She was raped on 16 February this year, one of the accused was recently released from jail so she thought that he will kill her," said victim's father.

The minor is out of danger now, informed the police.

"She is out of danger right now, but has suffered third-degree burns on 40 percent of her body. Investigation is underway," said Anil Sharma (SDOP).
