TV Serial effect: Girl hangs herself to imitate

Kolkata, June 09: Here is a tragic incident has happened while A 7-yrs-old minor girl died in Kolkata after she tried to imitate a suicide scene shown in a TV serial.

The incident occurred when the seven-year-old girl was with her two-month-old brother at the house in Ichhapore. The kid's mother had gone outside and father was also out for work.

When the mother came back home, she found her little girl hanging by a scarf from the roof. The child was rushed to the hospital but was declared brought dead.

"It appears that she tried to mimic a scene from a TV serial that she was watching. Somehow, the scarf she was playing with got firmly wrapped around her neck," said a senior police officer at the Barrackpore Commissionerate, according to media.

The initial investigation revealed that the child died of suffocation. Her body has been sent for post-mortem.

This is not the first time that a child has died imitating serials. Recently, an eight-year-old girl also accidentally hanged herself in Meerut after seeing a crime show. Also, in 2017, a seven-old-girl immolated herself while imitating a scene from a TV serial.
