New Delhi, April 4, 2013, (IANS)

A 16-year-old girl committed suicide by shooting herself with a gun at her house here, police said Thursday. She was depressed due to a family dispute.

"Puja shot herself with her grandfather's licensed gun at her house in Palam area in west Delhi," said a police officer, adding that no suicide note was recovered.

Puja was alone at her house when the incident took place. Hearing the sound of the firing of a bullet, her grandmother rushed to her room where she was lying in a pool of blood on the floor.
