She was raped by her employer and his friends.
The woman drank poison at the city court in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, and was rushed to hospital, where doctors said she is not in a critical condition.
She alleges her employer and his friends raped her at a garment factory where she worked in 2007 and that the police refused to file the case when she first reported it.
The police maintained that her allegations were false - a defence rejected by the court in 2010, NDTV reported.
A fresh inquiry was launched and the woman's medical file requested, only for the case to be adjourned until next month.
