Humiliated over affair, teen girl commits suicide

BARRACKPORE: Unable to bear the humiliation meted out to her by her boyfriend's parents, a 15-year-old schoolgirl committed suicide at her house in Barrackpore's Bhattacharyapara near Titagarh in North 24-Parganas on Friday afternoon. The victim's boyfriend and his parents have been arrested. The boy's father is a police constable posted in Nadia.

The accused will be produced in court on Saturday.

Police said that the victim, a Class-IX student, was found hanging from the ceiling of her room around 1.30pm on Friday when she was alone in the house. The girl was taken to Barrackpore BN Bose Hospital where she was declared brought dead.

Police suspect that the girl committed suicide after being allegedly humiliated by the parents of her boyfriend. No suicide note was found in the room. The body was sent for autopsy.

For the past few months, the girl was reportedly having an affair with a boy in the neighbourhood, also a Class-IX student. In fact, they attended classes at the same coaching centre in Barrackpore. The boy's father, a police constable posted in Nadia, had, however, opposed to the relationship and had threatened the girl with dire consequences if she continued to meet her son. But the duo continued with their affair.

The girl's mother, a school teacher, alleged that the boy's parents came to her house on Friday morning and publicly humiliated her and her daughter. "After a heated argument broke out, some neighbours also rushed to my house. But the boy's parents continued to humiliate both of us in front of the others. They even abused and threatened me and my daughter before leaving," she said.

The victim's mother then left for work, having no inkling about what was going on in her daughter's mind. "I left my house for work. I could never imagine that my daughter will take such a drastic step. When I returned home, I found her hanging in her room," she said, breaking down in grief. Following the incident, she lodged a complaint at Titagarh police station.

Later in the evening, police arrested the boy and his parents from their house in Barrackpore on charges of abetment of suicide. "The three have been arrested on the basis of a complaint lodged by the victim's mother. A probe has started in this connection," said Biswajit Ghosh, additional deputy commissioner of police, Barrackpore. The trio will be produced in court on Saturday.
