In yet another spine-chilling incident, a 17-year-old girl in Uttar Pradesh’s Banda district has allegedly committed suicide over repeated harassment by a relative.
The minor was found hanging inside her home on Wednesday, SHO, Chilla Ramashray Singh said on Thursday.
On the complaint of the girl's brother, a case of abetment to suicide has been lodged against the relative, the SHO said.
The matter was reported to police in September but the two sides reached an agreement, he said.
However, the harassment continued and the girl got fed up and decided to kill herself, the victim's brother alleged in the complaint.
