In a shocking incident that unfolded in Karnal, Haryana, a 16-year-old girl killed herself because she was allegedly being pressurised to develop a homosexual relationship by two sisters in her institute, reports The Times of India.
Reema (representative name) had reportedly been pursued by two sisters, belonging to class 11 and BA second year, for a long time. Her sister, with whom she shared a room in the hostel, said that Reema had been worried because of the two sisters.
When her sister knocked her room after returning from classes, Reema wouldn’t answer. That’s when the staff broke the door and found Reema hanging to death, on 3rd February 2017.
While the school authorities denied receiving any complaint in the matter before, Reema’s family asserted that Reema had been shifted to her sister’s room only after she complained of harassment, says the TOI report.
The accused sisters belong to Panipat. A case under IPC Section 306 (abetment of suicide) has been registered against them. Police are currently recording the statements of the students who had met Reema and the accused siblings before the suicide.
