Statesman News Service | Meerut |

A major twist has come in case of death of a teenager girl after self immolation due to stalking by boys after the police version of suicide as she had affair with one of the accused boys. The incident was reported in village Pachgaon Amar Singh Patta and succumbed to her burn injuries in the Medical college on Thursday.

SSP Meerut Manzil Saini ‘s press conference on Friday afternoon gave a twist to the case . In the PC all four accused of the case who were arrested were produced  and claimed that stalking or attempt of rape was not the reason of the self immolation of deceased Sakshi. The police version of the story says that Sakshi had friendship with one of the boys Shobhit of village Gawari and used to speak to him on phone. He also introduced her to Ankit and Ravi of his village and Mohit of Garhi village and she spoke to them as well. This came in the knowledge of the family members and on their strong objection she attempted for self immolation.

Deceased Sakshi(14) was daughter of Susheel Gupta of Village Pachgaon Amar Singh Patti . She was studying in class 8th in KVSS Inter college .  She burnt herself alive  throwing kerosene oil  on her. After immolation on Saturday she was admitted to Meerut Medical College with 80 percent burns and finally lost the battle of life on Thursday.

Unfortunately Medical college administration approached the Bhawanpur police twice but they did not paid any heed to visit the patient. SHO came just before the death of the girl.

” The family members did not approach the police neither after the incident nor after her death and in the Medical college as well they said that Sakshi met with an accident with the stove ,” told the police.

The SHO Bhawanpur Kartar Singh however   has been sent to the police lines in view of his reported  negligence in the case and the probe ordered by the SSP  Manzil Saini.
