Mumbai teen ends life over 'failed affair'

MUMBAI: A 15-year-old schoolgirl hanged herself at her Chembur residence on Sunday night, allegedly over a failed love affair.

The deceased, Varlakshmi Gowda, lived with her parents and three-year-old sister at Tata Colony.

Her parents work as daily wage labourers. "When Gowda's parents returned home around 9.30 pm, they found her hanging by a sari from a hook in the ceiling. The couple, with the help of neighbours and patrolling policemen, rushed the girl to a local dispensary where she was declared dead on arrival," said an officer.

Officials suspect Gowda, a class VIII student, was in a relationship with a boy residing in her colony. "We found a suicide note written by Gowda in Kannada. The only English words in it were 'I love you' addressed to a boy. The note has been sent for translation," said senior inspector Shirish Shelke.

The police are trying to trace the boy to find out whether they had a fight. "We believe the suicide is linked to her affair," an officer said. Officers have also written a letter to the school where Gowda studied. The body has been sent to Rajawadi post-mortem centre for an autopsy. A case of accidental death has been registered.
