RAIPUR: A suspected suicide pact involving two
teenaged girls has shocked a small hamlet in
Chhattisgarh’s Durg district. The girls — Gansehia
(15) and Asha (16) — set themselves on fire after
their parents allegedly discovered they were lesbians
and rebuked them.
Police said the duo’s charred bodies were found in the
fields of Kokla in Durg’s Bemetara block on Tuesday.
“Circumstantial evidence points to the fact that the
girls set themselves afire after getting into a
suicide pact. The girls died due to 100% burn
injuries,” Bemetara SHO, Vinod Pahade, said, adding,
“We recovered two empty kerosene cans and match boxes
from the suicide scene.”
Pahade said investigations revealed one of the girl’s
parents had recently caught the duo in a compromising
position. “The girls were reprimanded and asked to
maintain distance,” he said.
