The 17-year-old girl, who allegedly committed suicide by jumping off of a mall in East Delhi on Thursday evening, was identified as a BBA student and daughter of a sub-inspector with provincial armed constabulary at Ghaziabad.
Police sources said that according to the suicide note the girl left behind, she stepped out of home on Thursday morning after an altercation with her parents.
After the girl went out of her house around 11.30am on Thursday, her father lodged an FIR under section of kidnapping (section 363 of IPC) against an unidentified person at the Indirapuram police station around 5.30pm. The police said that the girl’s family hails from Baghpat in Western UP.
In his FIR, the girl’s father alleged that an unidentified man had sent some obscene messages on his daughter’s mobile phone and the same person also sent some photographs of his daughter.
“The man was after my daughter for the past two years. He was regularly sending messages on WhatsApp and sent messages to my son and even on my mobile phone. He continued to send messages even as we changed numbers. We don’t know him personally but he belongs to Rajasthan,” he said.
“Due to this issue, my daughter was under severe depression since many days and left the house. After we received information about the suicide, we went to Delhi and identified her body,” he added.
The Ghaziabad police said that the girl left a suicide note addressed to her parents. In the note, the girl stated that her mother said something which broke her heart.
“I hid things as I never wanted to disturb you... I admit that I made a mistake by speaking to him... and my mistake cannot be rectified now. All this drama started because of me and will now end with me...” the note said.
The Ghaziabad police said that they found photographs of a young man and the girl, which were taken in a public place.
“The girl’s family told us that they don’t know the man. They have given us several mobile numbers from which he sent messages. We are trying to trace the man with the help of the mobile numbers. We are investigating the case,” said Atul Yadav, circle officer (Indirapuram).
