girl Karur ends her days for sexual harassment | Chennai News


KARUR: A 17-year-old girl died by suicide at her home in Karur, Tamil Nadu, Friday night. Karur police recovered a diary in which the girl mentioned that she was ending her life because of the sexual harassment she had suffered.
Stating that she should be the latest victim of sexual harassment, the girl mentioned that she was afraid to reveal the identity of the perpetrators.
Police said they had no idea who was behind the girl’s sexual harassment. She was a class XII student at a Karur school. The police checked with the school administration. Since she studied at another school up to grade X, the police also checked with the administration of that school.
She was the only daughter of her widowed mother. They were living in a rental house. The girl was also undergoing NEET training at her school. On Friday evening, she came home from school around 5:30 p.m.
The young girl ended her life by hanging from a fan hook while her mother was away in her shop. The incident came to light when a woman in the family, residing nearby, went to tell the girl to light lamps on the occasion of Karthigai.
The girl was rushed to Karur Government Medical College Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Vengamedu police registered one case of suspicious death under Article 174 of the CrPC and initiated investigations. Based on the investigations, the case could be amended and articles of the Protection of Children Against Sexual Offenses Act (POCSO) could be invoked.
