The police swung into action and reached the village's cremation ground, where the funeral pyre had already been lit, he said.
The fire was extinguished and the remains of her half-burnt body were collected, the official added.
He said the girl's family told the police that she died after complaining of discomfort in her chest and stomach.
"The body has been sent for post-mortem at the PGIMS, Rohtak, to ascertain the cause of the death. We are awaiting the report and will initiate further action accordingly," the official said.
