Mumbai Police to record 15-yr-old’s statement

“The 15-year-old’s statement will soon be recorded following which there will be more clarity in the matter. Meanwhile, we are recording the statements of all the eyewitnesses in the matter,” said The Zonal deputy commissioner of police.

The Mumbai Police, probing the suicide of a 21-year-old woman from Chunabhatti, will soon record the statement of the 15-year-old girl with whom she was reportedly in a “romantic relationship”.

On August 27, the woman allegedly hung herself with a rope inside her home hours after being reprimanded by the minor girl’s father, who has been booked for abetment to suicide, and a local Shiv Sena leader.

The police arrested the duo on the complaint of the sister of the deceased, who claimed that the two men had threatened the woman with “dire consequences” if she didn’t keep her distance from the younger girl.

“The 15-year-old’s statement will soon be recorded following which there will be more clarity in the matter. Meanwhile, we are recording the statements of all the eyewitnesses in the matter,” said Shahaji Umap, zonal deputy commissioner of police.

According to the police, the 15-year-old’s father came to know about the nature of her “relationship” with the 21-year-old, both of whom are neighbours, when a relative spotted them together.

“The father considered the 21-year-old a bad influence on his daughter and had approached the local Shakha Pramukh to arbitrate the matter, who further summoned the 21-year-old with her parents,” said an officer privy to the investigation.

Around the same time, the 15-year-old drank phenyl at her residence to commit suicide but survived after she was rushed to a hospital. The following morning, the 21-year-old took the extreme step when she was alone at her home.
