A minor girl from Badabalikuda village under Balichandrapur police station in Jajpur district allegedly died by suicide after her family members said no to her relationship with a local youth.
As per reports, the minor girl was in a relationship with one Sagar Biswal who belongs to the same area. However, the girl’s family members were against their relationship and they had also warned her of facing dire consequences.
