According to a report, the suicide note of the girl was found on Saturday. Titled, ‘Stop Sexual Harassment’, she wrote about the mental trauma sexual harassment caused to a victim. She appealed to parents to teach their sons how to respect girls in society.

“Every parent should teach their sons to respect girls. Don't trust relatives or teachers. The only safe place is a mother's womb and the cemetery,” read the letter.

She said schools or a relative’s place were not safe. Reports have quoted her family members as saying that she was harassed by someone from her previous school. The change of school reportedly did not end her harassment.

In her letter, she further said sexual harassment was becoming intolerable and that she was in immense pain due to it but nobody consoled her.
