Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal came down heavily on central government as a 17-year-old girl allegedly hung herself at Delhi’s Tilak Vihar police station. The girl came in police station complaining that her family would thrash her for her friendship with a 21-year-old neighbor.
Taking action on the suicide on the police watch, two policemen have been suspended and two other shunted out.
Targeting the ruling BJP at the centre, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said ‘law and order in the capital of India is deteriorating by the day”.
The incident unfolded on Saturday when a fight broke out between the families of the girl and her in Tilak Vihar in west Delhi. The girl’s brother allegedly went to the neighbor’s house and accused his family of hiding the teenager.
The police said that its team rushed to the apartments of two families responding to a call and they took six to seven people to hospital and some of them to the police station.
Around 2.30 am, the girl also reached at the police station and told the police that she will not go home to the police staion.
When the two fighting families were still at the police station, a relative of the girl’s male friend arrived and alleged that he was beaten up. 30 people at the police station again started fighting and wringling before the policemen.
During this chaos, the girl reportedly locked herself in a room and killed herself by hanging through ‘chunni’.
“In the suicide matter, sub-inspector Parvesh Kaushik, in-charge of the Tilak Vihar outpost and woman constable Manmohan Kaur are sent to district line. All failed to perform their duties properly due to which the girl found a chance and committed suicide," said Vijay Kumar, Deputy Commissioner of Police.
