A 14-year-old girl was found hanging in her house in Madadev Nagar of Kanganwal on Wednesday morning.

Police said according to her family, the girl, a student of Class 9, was gloomy for the past few days, but did not reveal the reason to her parents.

He raised the alarm, following which neighbours helped him rush his daughter to a nearby private hospital, where doctors declared her brought dead.

ASI Opinderjit Singh, in-charge, Kanganwal police post, said they did not find any suicide note in the house.

The body has been sent to the Ludhiana civil hospital for post-mortem. “Further action will be taken following the autopsy report and statements of the deceased’s family members,” the ASI said.
