A Class 6 student allegedly committed suicide following a tiff with her classmates in south Kolkata’s Behala, police said on Tuesday.
“Srestha Dey (11), a Class 6 student of Jodhpur Park Girls High School, committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling fan at her house at A.K. Paul Road in Behala’s Parnasree area at around 10 p.m. on Monday,” an officer from Parnasree Police Station said.
According to police, the girl was alone in the house when the incident happened. A suicide note has been found in the room.
The family members said Srestha was upset over an argument with her classmates on that day.
“She looked upset after coming back and said she had a fight with her friends in school,” the deceased’s mother said.
“She said she wants to discuss something with me. I was working downstairs. Never realised she would do something like this,” she said with tears in her eyes.
Police said the reason of death would be confirmed after the autopsy report.
“The investigation is on to find out why the girl committed suicide. We are awaiting the autopsy report,” the officer added.
