A prank allegedly prompted a 16 years old girl to end her life at Pandepokhri village in Partur tehsil of Jalna district today, police said. The primary health centre, Partur, received a call that the girl was suffering labor pains and needed medical aid.
When a medical team reached her house, her father was baffled; he told them that his daughter was unmarried and there was no question of she being pregnant. The girl, according to police, felt so humiliated by this prank that she consumed poison. She died at the primary health centre during the treatment. Upon her father's complaint, the call was traced to the phone of Datta Kundlik Jagtap, resident of the same village. Jagtap had been arrested and further probe was on, police said.
