Kozhikode: A Russian woman has been admitted to the Kozhikode Medical College Hospital after she allegedly jumped from the first floor of a house.
The woman had reached Kerala from Qatar with a male friend, a native of Koorachundu, Kozhikode, whom she met through Instagram.
The woman's statement was recorded by the police. She testified that she suffered mental and physical abuse from her male friend. "I was forcefully drugged and tortured. That led to the suicide attempt," she said.
The friend has been taken into police custody in connection with the incident.
According to reports, local residents informed the police about the incident and said the woman jumped to save her life after a fight broke out between them at the man's house.
The Kerala Women's Commission has voluntarily filed a case and sought an urgent report from the Koorachund police station officer on the incident.
