Twelve-year-old girl allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself in Maharashtra after apparently watching suicide videos on YouTube, a police official said Sunday.

Shikha Rathod, a resident of Hansapuri area, had seen some suicide-related YouTube videos on her father’s mobile phone, he said. The reason behind suicide was yet not known, he said, adding that an accidental death report was registered.

She had also informed about these videos to her mother, who never thought that the girl would end her life, he said.

Around 4 pm on Saturday, the girl allegedly hanged herself from a ceiling fan by using an elastic rope at her home, the official said.

Her younger sister saw her hanging and immediately informed their mother.

The girl was rushed to a government hospital where she died while undergoing treatment, the official said.
