12-year-old from Nagpur hangs herself after watching suicide videos

Nagpur: A 12-year-old girl killed herself in Nagpur allegedly after watching suicide videos on YouTube, a policeman said on Sunday.

Shikha Rathod, a resident of Hansapuri area here, had seen some videos on YouTube on her father’s mobile phone and even told her mother about them, the policeman said.

The child’s younger sister found her hanging from a ceiling fan on Saturday evening and immediately told their mother. The child was then taken to a hospital but died while she was being treated.

Police have yet to investigate why she killed herself, the official said, adding that they had registered a case of accidental death.
