Bengaluru: A 14-year-old girl committed suicide by hanging after her parents advised her to stay away from her boyfriend and concentrate on studies. The incident took place in Devasandra in K.R. Puram police station limits on Friday.
The deceased, Pavitra, was a ninth standard student in a private school. She was the daughter of Anandan and Narasamma and the family resided at Devasandra. Anandan was a cab driver while Narasamma worked as a house keeping staff in a private firm.
According to the police, the girl took the extreme step after her parents left for work. The incident came to light when a neighbour went to the house and found the girl hanging from the ceiling around 12 noon. He alerted Anandan, who immediately rushed home before informing the police.
“The girl has left a note stating that she was in love with Ramesh, a cab driver, and wanted to marry him. As her parents were opposed to it, she took the extreme step. However, the parents have made a statement that Ramesh was not letting her attend classes and they had warned both Ramesh and Pavitra to stay away from each other. They had also advised their daughter to concentrate on studies as she was still a minor.
However, Ramesh allegedly continued to meet her. We are investigating the case from all angles,” the police said. Pavitra’s father had filed a complaint with the K.R. Puram police alleging that his daughter took the extreme step because of Ramesh. The police are investigating the matter.
