A 14-year-old girl committed suicide in the city as she was facing harassment by a youth who lived next-door, police said today.
The incident took place under the limits of the Civil Lines Police station.
The 17-year-old youth, who often followed the girl to her school and a coaching centre, approached her last evening and forced her to take a mobile phone and asked her to be in touch with him, Mishra said.
When the girl complained to her parents, they ticked him off, which led to a heated argument between the two families, the police officer said.
Amid the quarrel, the girl ran inside and hanged herself after locking herself in a room.
Her parents broke open the door and rushed her to a hospital where doctors declared her brought dead, Mishra said.
