A student of class 7 allegedly committed suicide in her home in Delhi’s Inderpuri when her mother was away at work.
According to reports, she wrote the suicide note on her palm.
Daisy Rathore, 12, who hanged herself from a ceiling fan at her home on December 1, wrote the teacher’s name on her palms and hands and also left behind a note stating the reason for her extreme step.
The girl was found hanging at her house on Saturday, a senior police officer was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
The school management released a statement regarding the matter saying that they are fully cooperating with the investigating authority and were also conducting an internal inquiry.
“As of now we are not at liberty to disclose any details which may jeopardise the police investigation of the case,” the statement said.
The police said that relentless humiliation and rebuke from her science teacher over the last few months forced the student to take the extreme step.
“We are waiting for the autopsy report and recording statements of the victim’s friends and classmates. We will take strict action against the culprit,” Joint Commissioner of Police Madhup Tiwari told IANS.
“On her palms and hands she wrote that she did not want to go to school any more. She apologized to her mother and grandmother and said she was going to meet Lord Krishna,” he added.
Daisy Rathore was a student of Gyan Mandir Public School at Naraina Vihar.
She was last seen alive by her mother Kamal Rathore, before leaving for the Tis Hazari Court where she is an advocate.
Around 4 p.m., when the mother returned, she discovered her daughter’s lifeless body, a police officer said.
