A 15-year-old girl allegedly committed suicide in her house in Pabna on Thursday as her parents could not buy her a dress for Eid-ul-Azha.

The deceased was identified as Lata Khatun, a ninth-grade student of Pachuria Muktijoddha Adarsha High School in Bara Dahapara village of Pachuria union.

Her father Rowshan Ali said: “We could only buy a dress for Lata’s brother Nayan this Eid due to financial constraints. Probably, my daughter was hurt and hanged herself from the ceiling around 9pm.”

Both of Lata’s parents went to meet their other daughter Shathi Khatun when Nayan found her hanging from the ceiling, said Md jalal Uddin, officer-in-charge of Chatmohar police station.

A case of unnatural death has been filed in this regard, he said.
