New Delhi, Aug 22 (IANS) A 15-year-old committed suicide by shooting herself with her father’s revolver at her residence here, police said Wednesday.

Ayushi Singh, a class IX student of Kendriya Vidyalaya, was found dead at her home in Himalaya Apartments in west Delhi’s Rohini Sector 2 around 8.30 p.m. Tuesday.

At the time of the incident she was alone in the house.

The family members called the police when she did not open the door.

She was found in a pool of blood after the door was broken open.

“Prima facie evidence indicates that the girl knew how to handle the revolver, licensed on the name of her father Yogesh Kumar. It did not look like an accident. It’s a clear case of suicide as the victim shot herself in her temple,” police said.

“Neighbours say that she was short tempered. That might be the reason behind her extreme step,” police added.

“We are awaiting Ayushi’s post-mortem report. A probe is on to find out why she shot herself,” police said.
