Class 12 girl found hanging at home, no suicide note recovered

 A class 12 student of a government school was found hanging at her house in south-west Delhi’s Sagarpur. Police suspect it to be a case of suicide, but no note was found.

A call was also made to the police control room after which a crime team inspected the room.

Police did not find any suicide note, but have ruled out any foul play.

The officer also said the incident is being investigated under section 174 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.

The victim’s body was handed over to family after a post-mortem on Saturday.
