MUZAFFARGARH: A teenage girl committed suicide over harassment and blackmail by a suspect at Shehr Sultan, about 30km from here.

The 18-year-old girl, a resident of Shehr Sultan, killed herself on Saturday after the man asked her to meet him or he would upload her pictures and videos on the Internet. Her sister told the police that the suspect had blackmailed the deceased in the past.

On Saturday, she said her sister recorded the conversation with the suspect and gave it to the police. Later, she hanged herself with an electric fan.

District Police Officer Imran Kishwar took notice of the incident on Sunday and ordered the Shehr Sultan police to register a case against the suspect. The police reached the house of the victim girl to get details from her family.

The Shehr Sultan SHO said the victim’s family neither approached the police regarding the case nor filed the application against the suspect but the police were going to take action against him.
