West Bengal girl slashes wrist after fight with boyfriendDecember 12th, 2008 - 6:29 pm ICT by IANS
Kolkata, Dec 12 (IANS) A 14-year-old girl killed herself by slashing her wrist after a fight with her boyfriend in a West Bengal village, a police officer said Friday.Early Friday Mukul Sapui locked herself inside her bedroom and slashed her wrist with a knife at Debrajpur village of Birbhum district, about 220 km from here, the police officer said.
“Hearing her groans, the girl’s parents broke open the door and found her subconscious lying in a pool of blood. By the time they took her to a clinic the girl died,” he said.
He said a letter recovered from Sapui’s room said that she did not want to live any more as her boyfriend Kishore did not want to see her face.
“The time mentioned in the letter is 3.30 am. So it seems that Sapui cried the whole night before writing the letter,” he said.
Seventeen-year-old Kishore, a resident of the same village, was called by the police for questioning Friday afternoon.
“Kishore said Sapui was pressurising him for marriage. But being unemployed he was unwilling to accept her proposal. They had a fight Thursday afternoon and in the heat of the moment, he asked Sapui to leave him alone and said he doesn’t want to see her face any more,” the officer added.
“I never thought my words will kill her,” Kishore told the police.
