Humiliated by local youth, girl takes own life in E Midnapore
A 17-year-old girl committed suicide after she was humiliated by some members of a local club after they spotted her talking to one of her friends.
The shocking incident occurred at Bojbajia area of Khejuri in East Midnpaore.
The local MP Shisir Adhikary asked the police superintendent to take strong action against the accused who humiliated the girl by confining her inside the club room.
It was learnt that some local youth spotted the victim girl, Sanghamitra Paria talking to a local youth in the area.
They forcibly took her to a local club and asked her why she was talking to the boy.
She told them that he was her friend and hence they were discussing a matter.
However, that did not convince the local youth who one pretext or the other misbehaved and humiliated the girl.
They confined her inside the local club for quite some time. She was later released from the local club.
She was so tormented by the incident that she took the drastic step of killing herself.
On Wednesday morning, her family members knocked on the door of her room but she did not open the door.
Later, they broke open the door and entered into the room to find the girl hanging from the ceiling.
After being informed the police reached the spot and her body was sent to the Kanthi sub-divisional hospital for the post-mortem examination.
Police have started a detailed probe into the incident. They also interrogated the club members in this regard.
