HUBBALLI: Yashodha, 18, younger sister of Anjali Ambiger who was murdered at her residence in Hubballi on Wednesday, has tried to end her life by consuming toilet liquid on late Saturday night.

She was taken to KIMS hospital for the treatment on the same night itself. The doctors attending her have said that the girl is out of danger and she is under constant watch.

On Saturday during the massive protest held in condemning the gruesome murder of Anjali in Hubballi, Yashoda took ill and was taken back to her residence at Veerapura Street. Later in the night she consumed phenol and fell off on the ground. Her family members and neighbours shifted her to the hospital.
