In a bizarre incident, a, 18-year-old girl allegedly committed suicide in the Umarwada village in Madhya Pradesh’s Seoni district after her mother scolded her for buying a mobile phone, the police said on Tuesday. The teenaged girl was found hanging from the ceiling fan on Monday. Her body was discovered when her younger brother reached home.
Barghat Police Station in charge Santosh Dhurve said a suicide note, purportedly written by her, was recovered from the house. In the suicide note, the teen apologised to her mother for buying the phone.
The teen’s mother, a labourer, has told police the girl had purchased a mobile phone with the money kept at home for repaying a loan and this led to an argument between the two on Sunday, the official said.
“She later hanged herself on Monday morning. The investigation in the incident is underway,” Dhurve said.
