A girl allegedly committed suicide by jumping into the Shahpura lake on Wednesday morning.

Police said that the deceased was identified as Rashmi, 20, who lived near Baba Nagar, close to Shahpura C Sector. The girl was missing since Monday night. After her family members failed to locate her, police were informed.

Throughout the day on Tuesday, the police kept looking for her. However, today morning the body was spotted by fishermen and subsequently recovered with the help of divers. Police said that postmortem report is awaited to ascertain if it is a case of suicide or there is any foul play.

However, city superintendent of police (CSP) Rajesh Singh Bhdadoria said that initial inquiry suggested that she had left home after she was scolded. Police sources said she had a row with her family members, as they didn’t like her friendship with a youth following which she had left home at around 3am. It is suspected that she jumped into the lake on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

In another incident, police recovered body of a youth from under the Bhanpur over-bridge at Chhola.
