Jalandhar, September 12

A 22-year-old girl committed suicide in the Aman Nagar area after her father refused to give her money to go out here on Sunday. The deceased has been identified as Muskan. After the police were informed about the incident, a team of cops reached the spot and sent the body for a post-mortem.

Rajinder Kumar, father of the victim, said his daughter was insisting on going out and was asking for money and when he refused to give her money and asked her to go some other day, she got angry and locked herself in a room.

“She also played loud music. After a while when we asked her to come out, she did not respond. Later, we broke open the door only to find her hanging from a ceiling fan. By the time we brought her body down, there was no movement in her body. Subsequently, the police were called,” added Rajinder Kumar, who runs a paan and cigarette stall.

Inquest proceedings under Section 174 of the CrPC have been initiated.
