Denied to watch a TV show, 9-year-old hangs herselfJune 12th, 2012 - 6:01 pm ICT by IANS
Kanpur, June 12 (IANS) A nine-year-old girl in Uttar Pradesh committed suicide by hanging herself after her siblings refused to let her watch her favourite television show, police said Tuesday.
The tragedy took place at Hanspuram colony in Naubasta in Kanpur at the house of truck mechanic Om Prakash Gupta.
Kiran, a student of Class 5, had a quarrel with her siblings Monday evening over watching a television show, after which she got up in a huff and locked herself in another room, police said.
Kiran took her mother’s sari along with a stool and hanged herself from the ceiling fan. When Kiran did not come out of the room for some time, the other children in the house opened the room only to find Kiran hanging, Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Amitabh Yash told IANS.
Scared, they raised an alarm after which neighbours called the police. Her parents - Om Prakash and mother Geeta - had gone out Monday evening when the incident took place.
