According to the police, the 15-year-old died by suicide after the incident but, the kin of the victim said she was poisoned by the accused.

The girl belonging to a village under the Sardhana Kotwali area consumed poison after returning home on Thursday evening, said police adding she died in the hospital during the treatment.
