A 17-year-old student from Delhi collapsed and died at The Great India Place Mall on Friday, police said.
Deepta, a student of a private school at Dwarka, was at the mall with her schoolmates.
“At about 3 pm, we received a call about the incident. A team from the local police post immediately rushed the victim to the Kailash Hospital. At 3.15 pm, the doctors declared her dead,” said Sector 39 police station house officer, BR Zaidi.
Deepta’s friends told police that she was a heart patient and had recently undergone open-heart surgery.
“The body was sent for postmortem, reports of which are awaited to ascertain the cause of death,” said Zaidi.
Kailash Hospital spokesperson, VB Joshi, said, “The girl was brought with no pulse. She was declared dead after multiple attempts to revive her pulse turned futile. She had no external injury marks on her body.”
Police informed Deepta’s parents, who came to the hospital late in the evening.
“The body will be handed over to the parents once the autopsy is done. No complaint has been filed with the police so far,” said Zaidi.
