17 year old girl slashes wrist and hangs herself in school bathroom in Gurgaon
Another hair-raising news shocks Gurgaon. A Class XII student committed suicide by slashing her wrists and then hanging herself inside her school on Thursday.

Police informed that the incident took place in Rotary Public School, Sector 22, around 1.25pm after the 17-year-old victim's teacher pulled her up for texting in class. The girl's class teacher said “I had given the students some free time between classes. When I noticed the girl using her phone in class, I confiscated it and took her to the principal. Her father was also asked to come to school. After the class ended, the next teacher found the girl missing. We began searching for her. A school employee found that one bathroom stall was locked from inside. The girl was found hanging from the exhaust fan inside the stall. We informed the police and the girl's father. She was taken to a hospital where she was declared dead.”

The girl used the pieces of a broken tile to slash her wrist and her socks to strangle herself. Rajesh Kumar, ACP (crime) told the, “ Her body has been sent for postmortem. No suicide note was found.” Dr. Vinod Kumar, team incharge said “ There are no clues pointing towards the presence of another person inside the toilet.”

“I first got a call from the school around 12.56pm. The teacher is spoke with never said anything about a cell phone and just said it was urgent. When I was about to reach the school I got another call saying my daughter was no more. I suspect foul play as the condition in which the body was found does not support the suicide theory,” girl's father, a businessman, told the media.

However, school's principal Gulshan Dewan said “We do not allow mobiles in school, but students and parents refuse to follow this rule. It is high time parents understand that mobiles should not be given to children during school.” School authorities claim the incident involving the girl's mobile pushed her to take the extreme step.
