A nurse was found hanging from a wall of a private hospital in Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao district on Saturday. It was her first day at work at New Navjeevan Nursing Home in Bangarmau area of Unnao. Family members have alleged that she was raped, assaulted and then murdered.
The police have sent the body for post-mortem and a case of gang-rape and murder has been registered against three based on the FIR filed by the mother of the nurse.
The 18-year-old nurse from a nearby village had joined the hospital on April 29. The hospital had opened on April 25. The woman had taken a room on rent near the hospital, the police said.
Additional superintendent of police Shashi Shekhar Singh has said, “The body has been sent for post-mortem to ascertain the cause of death.
