Nirbhaya gangrape convict Vinay Sharma attempts suicide yet again
New Delhi : Nirbhaya gangrape convict Vinay Sharma has yet again attempted suicide at the high-security Tihar Jail in New Delhi.
According to reports, Vinay tried to hang himself with a towel in a toilet of the jail on Wednesday morning. However he was rescued safely.
Earlier in 2016, the convict made a similar attempt to end his life but failed.
Sources said, Vinay was suffering from depression after a Delhi court announced death sentence against the four convicts including Vinay in connection to 2012 Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case in the national capital.
Twenty-three-year-old paramedical student Nirbhaya was gangraped inside a moving bus and her friend was beaten up in Delhi on December 16, 2012.
Eleven days after the assault, the victim was transferred to a hospital in Singapore for emergency treatment but succumbed to her injuries two days later.
