In a tragic incident, a 14 year old girl allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself at her residence in Ahmedabad’s Gota area under the territorial limits of Sola Police on Thursday afternoon. The teenager took the extreme step as she was upset after her aunt rebuked her for talking to a boy.
The suicide victim was a student of Class 8 at a private school in the city. During interrogation, the members of her family told the police that she often talked to a boy from her class, which they didn’t approve of. On Thursday, she was found speaking to the boy near their house, following which her aunt chided her. The aunt also warned the girl, saying that she would be punished if they found her talking to the boy again.
After being scolded, the teenage girl went to her room and hanged herself from the ceiling fan using a dupatta. She was found hanging by her younger brother, who entered the room while playing in the house, according to a report by The Times of India.
