A 16-year-old girl in Delhi committed suicide by hanging herself after she was duped of Rs 29,000 by two men at an ATM in sector 14, Dwarka. The girl’s father was undergoing a medical treatment and she went to withdraw Rs 6000 for the same. It is also being said that the family of the girl was facing financial problems.

The girl went to the ATM on May 7 at 11 am after her father Ranjeet Das, a private company employee, asked her to check the account balance and withdraw Rs 6000 for medicines and household expenses. She was then approached by two men. The elder sister of the deceased told The Times of India, ”One of them suggested taking the balance slip, but Nisha said there was no need because the bank would send the balance text message on the mobile phone. When the man insisted that was not reliable, she again swiped the cards to generate the balance slips.”

After this, the father of the girl received messages saying Rs 19,000 has been withdrawn from one account and Rs 10,000 from another. The family members said that the girl started crying after realising that the two men have duped her and fraudulently managed to carry out the transaction. She then went to the ATM hoping she would be able to locate the two men, but they were no longer there. She went on to file an e-FIR at the police station with her relatives.

As per her family, she seemed very withdrawn that day and expressed guilt. On May 8, her sister alerted the family members after she did not get any response even after repeatedly knocking on the door. The family then found her body hanging on the third floor of their house in Bharat Vihar Colony after they broke the door open.

Shibesh Singh, DCP (Dwarka) said that an investigation under Section 174 of Code of Criminal Procedure (CrCP) was being carried out. He also said that the CCTV footage of the ATM has been obtained by the police. Although no suicide note is recovered, it is being assumed that the girl ended her life due to the guilt of losing money.
