Pune: The police have arrested three persons for allegedly pushing a 14-year-old to the point of committing suicide. The girl allegedly tried to commit suicide by hanging from the ceiling of her house in Bhosari on January 3.

The girl is in coma and has been fighting for her life since the last 12 days. Her parents alleged that the girl tried to take the extreme step due to harassment and negligence of the Bhosari MIDC police, who failed to take action against the suspects. The suspects have been identified as Babu Nayak, Sachin Chavan and Aquib Shaikh. The suspects were produced before a court on Thursday that remanded them in police custody for 10 days.

Rajendra Kunte, senior inspector of the Bhosari MIDC police station, said action will be taken against the policemen for their alleged negligence.

The incident took place on December 31 when the trio allegedly teased the girl, who was on her way home. The girl told her parents about the incident after reaching home. "They alerted the police control room immediately. Two police constables had gone to their house," Kunte said.

At that time, the parents had told the policemen that they would inform parents of the suspects themselves, Kunte said.

Another police officer said when the parents had gone to the houses of the suspects, the trio used abusive language against them. Later, two of them visited the girl's house and harassed her again, the officer said.

The girl's parents said when they went to lodge a complaint, the Bhosari MIDC police had registered a non-cognizable offence. "Then on January 3, the girl attempted to commit suicide," the officer said.

Meanwhile, joint commissioner of police Sanjay Kumar on Thursday met the parents of the girl and assured them to take action against the policemen who failed to do their duty, the officer added.
