A girl, who was allegedly being molested and teased by her neighbour for a long time, ended her life in Navneet Nagar area in Mathura, the police said on Monday.
According to a complaint lodged by the girl's father, she was first sent to her maternal uncle's house in Etawah to save her from Pankaj, who used to molest and tease her, they said. But the accused was kidnapped by Pankaj from Etawah follwing which he was arrested, the police said.

"A hunt is on to nab the youth who virtually forced the girl to commit suicide," Deputy SP Vinay Singh Chauhan said.
