Tuesday, July 17, 2007

A ten (10) year old girl and former student (name withheld) at Gola Fortunate Primary School in Old Jeshwang, on Saturday afternoon, committed suicide after hanging herself in her bathroom.

According to sources close to the family, there is no clear reason which may force her to commit suicide, adding that the incident was a surprise to them.

Sources also told the Daily Observer that it was around 3:00 pm (lunch time) that the deceased was called for lunch and she said she was alright. “She then entered the bathroom and hung herself,” sources further revealed.

Sources added that they were not aware of all this because she did not complain of anything, neither misbehave in any form and they heard no noise when she was in the bathroom.
