Khurdha: In yet another case of teen suicide, a 17-year-old girl allegedly consumed poison and ended her life over unrequited love and harassment from the boy’s family in Nirakarpur area of Khurdha district in Odisha today. The deceased Akanksha Pradhan (name changed) was a Plus Two first year student from Padmapur village.
Sources said one Sajat Saha from the village had developed love interest in Akanksha and was pursuing her. The two reportedly had physical relationship and Sajat had proclaimed his love for Akanksha. When she did not reciprocate, Sajat had leaked some of her obscene videos and pictures after which Akanksha and her parents had filed a police complaint. However, while both parties reached a compromise with police intervention, Sajat reportedly continued to harass Akanksha.
Family members of the victim said the boy along with his brothers used to stalk Akanksha when she went to college. On Friday, he came over to their house and threatened to kill and burn her by throwing acid, Akanksha’s mother stated in the police complaint.
“We had earlier filed a case when the boy had leaked my daughter’s obscene pictures. Yesterday when she was coming home from her tuitions, the boy along with his father and brothers abused her. When she shared this with my wife, she scolded her for the involvement. This could have triggered my daughter to take the extreme step,” said father Kulamani Pradhan, adding that he wants action against all five members of the accused boy’s family and justice for his daughter.
Meanwhile, Balugaon SDPO reached and started investigation at Nirakarpur station. Police said they have detained female members of Sajat’s family while other accused are on the run.
