Bantwal, Aug 8: A 11-year-old girl died after the saree supporting a swing she was playing on accidentally wound around her neck in Bantranja of Ananthady village in the taluk on Monday, August 8.

The deceased girl is Likitha, daughter of Shekar, a resident of Bantranja.

She was studying in sixth standard at Babanakatte school.

On the fateful day, Likitha had skipped school and stayed back at home. She was playing on the swing when her father Shekar had gone out of the house with his wife Chandravathi.

When Chandravathi returned she found her daughter hanging from the saree and screamed aloud. Alarmed by her cries, the neighbours rushed to the spot and released the girl from the knot. However, Likitha was already dead.

The police are investigating.

    Very tragic! A very similar case occured in Kerala to a child when both her parents were out for work. But later it came to light that the child was abused by a nearby youth and he made it look like the child entangled in the swing. Post mortem is very important to rule out any foulplay.

    Very sad to hear this tragedy. I wish someone to be at home or either lock the doors completely so this never happens. Condolences to family.
