The Hush Post: A 17-year-old minor girl committed suicide at a police station in west Delhi’s Tilak Nagar area on Sunday morning. The mishap took place hours after the girl’s family came to the police station to report she was missing along with a boy from their neighbourhood.
The police were questioning the girl’s and the boy’s parents when she suddenly locked herself in a police officer’s room and committed suicide.
DCP (West) Vijay Kumar said that the police received a call at 10.30 pm on Saturday regarding a scuffle between two families over their missing children.
“We were informed that the girl who was a minor and the boy, who was aged 21, disappeared together.
At about 2.30 in the morning, the girl came to the police station and said that she doesn’t want to live with her parents as she was slapped by her mother for talking to the boy. She gave this to us in writing,” Kumar said.
While the policemen were pacifying both families, the girl entered a police officer’s room and locked herself from inside. “The policemen broke open the door and found the girl hanging. A judicial inquiry has been ordered and further investigation is being conducted,” a police officer was quoted as saying.
