Schoolgirl Antara Saha, 15, has committed suicide in Jamalpur after being sexually harassed.

The incident took place at Sancherpar village of Pogoldighi union in Sarishabari upazila on Monday night.

Narayan said: "On April 20, Tanin forcibly took photos of my daughter and made them go viral on Facebook. Antara informed us about it and we notified his parents, but even this time they did not look into the matter.  

"The Facebook incident traumatized my daughter. I want justice for this," he cried out. 

On the day of the incident Antara returned from her tuitions and a few hours later Antara's mother found her dead, hanging from the ceiling.

Antara's relative rushed her to Sarishabari Upazila Hospital, where Doctor Sahedur Rahman declared her dead.

On information, Md Ashraful Alam, sub inspector (SI) of Sarishabari police station, recovered Antara's body after initial investigation.

Officer in Charge (OC) of Sarishabari police station Md Majedur Rahman said: "The body will be sent to Jamalpur Sadar Hospital Morgue on Tuesday for autopsy. 

"After the deceased's family files a case, I will take all the necessary steps required," he added.
