Girl ends her life at school

Mandi Ahmedgarh, jan 12

A Class XII student of the Government Senior Secondary School for Girls, Gill, in Ludhiana district, allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan in the biology laboratory of the school, situated on its first floor, between Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning.

Though parents of the deceased, Harpreet Kaur (17), of Isher Nagar, Ludhiana, started searching for her after she failed to reach home on Monday afternoon, her body, hanging with a ceiling fan, was spotted by the school authorities this morning.

The Dehlon police have initiated inquest proceedings under Section 174 of the Code of Criminal Procedure and handed over the body of the deceased to her parents after conducting an autopsy at the Civil Hospital, Dehlon.

Investigating Officer Harnek Singh said Parminder Singh of Isher Singh Nagar, Ludhiana, had informed the police at 10.30 pm on Monday that his daughter had gone missing after attending classes at her school on Monday. Intensive search undertaken jointly by the parents of the deceased and the police proved futile till 10.30 am on Tuesday, when the school authorities informed the police about the recovery of the body from the school biology laboratory.

Parminder told the investigating team that his daughter had been under depression for a long time and had ended her life due to the same.

As her family did not want action against anybody, no criminal case was registered, said Harnek. — OC
