Laws for persons with disabilities if he attempts suicide

Hi. I want to ask if someone attempts suicide and manages to survive his/her attempt, but become a person with disability, can he/she challenge the person who tortured him/her to attempt suicide, in the court or not? A girl was molested & cheated when she was in a relationship with this person. In the end, she had no choice but to attempt suicide, now she wants to take that person to the court. Can she get any justice?

The girl cannot challenge on the ground that she attempted suicide due to the molestation or cheating by the person in the relationship because on this ground the girl itself will be liable for the attempt to suicide under section 309 IPC. But she can challenge on the other grounds that she was molested or cheated when she was in the relationship with that person.
