India, Nov. 20 -- A 15-year-old girl tried to kill herself by consuming poison shortly after a man and a boy sexually harassed her and one of them grabbed and tried to drag her in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr district on Thursday, a police officer said. She somehow managed to escape and returned home traumatised.

Circle officer Namrata Srivastav said one of the accused is a minor and both have been booked and arrested. Srivastav added the girl had gone to fetch water from a hand pump in her village when the two arrived there and sexually harassed her.
