He said that her daughter was harassed by two school teachers who also failed her in exams intentionally.

''She told me her SST teachers touched her inappropriately, I said since I'm also a teacher I can say they can't do it, might be a mistake but she said, 'I'm scared of them, no matter how well I write they'll fail me.' Ultimately they failed her in SST. School killed her,'' said the father of the victim. 

''The 15-year-old girl was brought to us, on arrival her pulse and blood pressure were un-recordable. We tried to revive her but couldn't. Cause of death can be known after postmortem,'' said a doctor at Kailash Hospital where a girl was admitted after she was found hanging from a railing. 

A case has been registered under sections 306 & 506 IPC & POCSO Act. Further investigation is underway.
