A 16-year-old girl allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself from a ceiling fan at her house in Khoda's Mithila Vihar colony after being scolded by a woman teacher, police said today.
The girl, Sonam, was a student of class 11 in a school in Delhi's Ghazipur. During attendance, the teacher asked her the reason for her non-attendance in the school on Wednesday, Station house Officer Dhuruv Bhushan Dubey said.
